Welcome to Spotlight
We make an app that surfaces high-quality news, based on machine learning, with built-in revenue opportunities for publishers that are more attractive than anything they can get from existing distribution channels.
We're news junkies who happen to be machine learning experts. We've built a series of prototypes and done market surveys. We've built a world-class advisory board (editors from BuzzFeed, LA Times, The Times Picayune, The Guardian, Vanity Fair).
Local newspapers are closing at an alarming rate. Smaller publications are struggling to modernize and most lack the resources to create their own mobile distribution platforms. Spotlight is working with local and college newsrooms to bring them the most recent technologies in content distribution and discovery.
