After months of preparation, we’re officially introducing our partner project Press Start. The site will become the first global crowdfunding platform for reporters in countries where the press cannot report freely, potentially revolutionizing the way independent journalism is funded in the developing world and countries in transition.


We’ve just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help us get the project off the ground, and we’d greatly appreciate your help to spread the word. Please follow us on Twitter  and Facebook, tell your friends and colleagues about Press Start and, if you like, support us on Kickstarter!
