Swedish Startup Helps Neglected News Items
The team at Newstag, a Swedish startup based in Stockholm, aims to change the way we consume news content. The mainsteam media often ignores particularly needy news cases. However, Newstag strives to shed light on the variety of issues whilst joining forces with charities in order to allocate funds and gain exposure. Newstag has recently formed a partnership with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) – the platform will increase awareness particularly on human rights issues worldwide. The Newstag site allows its users to customise the news they’d like to read and focus on stories from specific countries or regions. We’re glad to see startups that are formed for social good and encourage philanthropy amongst young entrepreneurs.
