NewsReach, an Ahmedabad-based digital media tech start-up, has raised undisclosed funding. A consortium of investors like JITO Angel Network, Beyond Partners - Indian Micro VC firm, CIIE initiative Start-up Oasis, Shashvat Nakrani (Co-founder Bharat Pe), Sharan Aggarwal (Angel investor & founder of Leviosa) contributed to the funding round.

NewsReach will use the fresh capital to further strengthen its company operations & technology stack, including its content e-commerce/marketplace, where buying/selling & licensing of the content in vernacular languages takes place. In the year of 2020, and 2021, NewsReach had raised 150k and 300k USD respectively in a Seed funding.

Founded in 2018 by Darshan Shah and Soniya Kundnani, NewsReach is serving the content creators and vernacular publishers in the creator economy domain with unparallel demand. Just over the last one month, NewsReach has experienced over 10x growth in traction pertaining to signup requests for its one-of-a-kind content marketplace, which is presently in public beta on an invitation basis. The overall revenue of the company has seen multi fold increase due to exponential digital adoption among the users, creators & publishers.

The start-up aims to digitise, facilitate, and provide a single platform SaaS and marketplace for the news media landscape.

Darshan Shah, Co-founder, NewsReach said, “The world around us is driven by content. The blogs to news websites, aggregators to offline publishers, content is everywhere. But the content industry is highly unorganised. The necessity of this age is to redefine, consolidate & streamline the entire ecosystem. Content creators, publishers, influencers & advertisers desperately need an Integrated Growth Environment. And we at NewsReach are redefining the whole vernacular news and content ecosystem in India.”

Talking about his investment in NewsReach, Angel Investor, Sharan Aggarwal said:
The media sector is here to stay. Especially digital media, which is the focus of NewsReach. The scalability potential is massive. I am proud to be one of the early backers of the NewsReach team, where a strong founding team has stood against all odds and constantly shown their ability to raise further rounds of funding. To borrow some words from Peter Thiel, NewsReach has already made it from 0 to 1, and it’s now just a question of making it from 1 to n!
