Idea pitch

Pressformore offers a promising way to reinvent quality investigative journalism by fixing a fair value to information, solve the funding issue of authors and give readers an access to their favorite information, by maximizing interactions with journalists and microdonations.

Why does Europe need your idea?

Our project could be an efficient way to catalyze the actual revitalization process of the European core values and tackle structural issues that plagued european initial project. Both are built on democratic and sustainable decisions, healthy debate, citizen engagement and multicultural construction. By supporting Pressformore, Europe could take the global lead on the future of what the creation and diffusion of information will look like in a few years. Our platform is really scalable, as all languages and all formats are supported. Our framework would also work for any kind of cultural good (e.g. music, cultural event) or any objects whose value is linked to user engagement.

What is your impact?

We now need to enlarge our community by contacting European digital producers (journalists, bloggers, experts) and to further develop our platform to welcome more and more users. In a year, we hope to reach 10,000 active users on a solid platform with open source algorithms and several success stories of digital authors with regular revenues.
This funding would help us to get a significant European visibility for our authors-recruitment campaign whereas the funding could help us to scale up this project by enhancing the quality of the technical aspect of the platform. New features will also be under development, on top of a funding channel, we want to facilitate creation of new articles/productions hand in hand with dedicated audience, other technicians (developers, designers) and amateurs

How do you get there?

Our platform is now ready to take-off. E-wallets, aggregation tools and the social network are ready. Publishers can already showcase their work and be rewarded by their communities. We will set up two strategies. Top-down first: we’ve already selected a row of interesting and engaging authors for whom we will create showcase profiles, allowing them to have a first series of production to be funded without any effort. Moreover as our system of content aggregation is based on crowdsourcing, we will also set a bottom-up strategy in which the different communities of interest will be invited through different events to call their favorite author to join our platform.
