Ecuador

Description

The first liberal, digital and alternative media of Ecuador. Founded in June 2011 in Ecuador, this digital media breaks with the paradigms of the traditional press and is part of the new Latin American journalism. They believe in the value of stories as tools of thought, compassion and celebration. They do not believe that journalism is going to change the world - this would be a disproportionate arrogance - but they think that if their stories manage to move someone, even in a very slight way, injustices will find remedy, those who have been marginalized will be heard, And those achieving exceptional achievements will be known. In 2014, They were one of three chosen media outlets - out of 130 - to participate in Media Factory, the region's first digital media accelerator.
