Headquarters

Seattle, WA, US

Total Funding

1.3M

Seattle based Newsvine was launched in March 2006 by veterans of Disney, ESPN, and other media organizations. Their idea was "to build a perfectly different, perfectly efficient way to read, write, and interact with the news." The solution they came up with is Newsvine, a community driven news site with stories from the Associated Press, ESPN and New Scientist as well as individual contributors from all around the world. Newsvine was [acquired](http://www.techcrunch.com/2007/10/07/breaking-newsvine-acquired-by-msnbccom/) by first time buyer MSNBC in October, 2007. Other community driven news sites include [Digg](http://www.digg.com), [Netscape](http://www.netscape.com) and [Reddit](http://www.Reddit.com).

How to invest in Newsvine stock?

Accredited investors can buy pre-IPO stock in companies like Newsvine through EquityZen funds. These investments are made available by existing Newsvine shareholders who sell their shares on our platform. Typically, these are early employees who need to fund a life event – house, education, etc. Accredited investors are then offered the opportunity to invest in this stock through a fund, like those used by hedge funds serving large investors. While not without risk, investing in private companies can help investors reach goals of portfolio diversification, access to potential growth and high potential return.
