We are funded!
We are almost never the first to break news. But we are often the first to make sense of breaking news. So it is when we are the news.
TechCrunch reported on Monday that some of the most high-profile investors in the country, including unicorn founders, have invested in Frontpage Media Technologies, The Signal’s parent company.
“India, and eventually the world, needs an outlet that goes beyond newsflashes and gets deep into nuanced reportage through a mix of curation, original writing, and new formats of sense-making,” TechCrunch quoted one of our investors, Miten Sampat of CRED, as saying.
