Taiwanese startup aims to reshape journalism in Taiwan

Using new funding from some top media veterans, The New Lens aims to reshape journalism in Taiwan. Having launched just five months ago, the Taiwanese startup has quickly gained gained traction as a trusted source for information in Taiwan’s crowded media landscape.

Earlier this month, The News Lens, an independent media startup in Taiwan, announced that it had received angel funding from Marcus Brauchli, whose resume includes top editing positions at the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, and Sasa Vucinic, who helped launch the non-profit Media Development Investment Fund (MDIF). In addition to their investment, Brauchli and Vucinic are also working closely with The News Lens as advisors.
