1.5 years and just starting. I am thrilled to announce two big news today. @aposto launched as a daily newsletter summarizing news from all around the world in under 5 minutes. Our motto was simple: Cut the noise.
In 1 year from a 5 people team, we grew into a 50 people company. And now we are evolving into an “all-in-one media service”. Our motto remains the same: Cut the noise.
Today we are thrilled to announce that we became one of the companies from Turkey selected to @google’s Google News Initiative (GNI), one of the most important digital journalism funds in the world. Under GNI’s funding we will not only develop products that will strengthen our core services, but also come up with universal solutions to most important problems in the current journalism landscape.
Today we are also thrilled to announce that we have recently closed our Seed Investment Round and we will publish all the details in our press release (apos.to/press) at the end of this month. I am very excited to work with all of our investors in the upcoming months and serve all of our readers in Turkey and in the entire world with the best media products they can have in their pockets.
What is next, now? In theaters, this September. Stay tuned.
From Galata with love,
