The NewsPicks team has ambitious goals. At a time when fabricated news stories and toxic, troll-filled comment sections plague most digital platforms, we believe we can build a more intelligent and more insightful community around the day’s most important news at the intersection of tech, business, politics, and culture. Just like the platform we are creating, we’re a diverse, but focused group—hailing from media, tech, finance, and advertising. What binds us all together? Our core mission: to empower you to broaden your perspectives, better understand the news and learn from each other.
