Just a quick update: we’ve recently raised a round of financing from great investors like SV Angel, CrunchFund, Betaworks, and more (including, previously, Y Combinator). Now we have the resources and absolute focus that will allow us to build not only a great collection of people, but also a new kind of media destination that approaches journalism differently–maybe we could call it the future of journalism, but we’re not entirely sure what that is yet, exactly.
What is obvious to us now is that our approach–giving tools and resources to great people so they can write great stuff–is working. Svbtle now has more than 200 writers with expertise spanning at least eight disciplines, including entrepreneurship, business, finance, political science, and literature. We’re growing quickly and already serve millions upon millions of page views per month.
As Svbtle becomes an important place for the sharing of ideas, we can’t wait to show you what we have planned.
