Trust in news media is at historic lows. Media organizations are getting important facts wrong or even actively misleading the public. We believe citizens should be less reliant on a minority of social influencers, editors, and journalists to interpret the world around them. At Nuprizm, we empower readers to contribute to and see critical context about the news to minimize the role toxicity and extremism play in driving the public conversation.
We've successfully raised an F&F round and are post-product with our iOS app, which is currently available in Apple's App Store. We are pre-market fit, and about to raise a pre-seed round to support an ambitious roadmap.
