WHO WE ARE
SourceRise was founded in 2015 by Caroline Avakian and developed by a team of Bitmaker Labs web developers led by Arya Iranpour.
WHAT WE DO
SourceRise was a social enterprise that directly connected journalists to expert sources at international NGOs during a time of crisis. Via a network of journalists and expert global NGO sources, SourceRise enabled development news reporting rooted in real time, accuracy, and deep context.
HOW WE DID IT
Via daily source request emails from journalists to sources, and digital media briefings on breaking global hot topics, we directly filled the void created by the shuttering of foreign news desks all over the world.
WHY WE DO IT
We created SourceRise with one goal in mind: To increase the number of compelling, well-researched global news stories in mainstream media.
