Crowdfunding record for quality journalism
The Correspondent raises more than one million euros in 8 days
The Correspondent, an Amsterdam-based startup aimed at presenting quality online journalism, reached a crowdfunding milestone today: more than 15.000 members helped the platform to raise over one million euros (approx. $1.3 million) in just 8 days. With this funding, creators Rob Wijnberg (Dutch journalist) and Harald Dunnink (founder of Momkai) hope to set up a new online platform for in-depth news analysis and long-form journalism, due in September 2013.
