Democracy needs good journalism. But journalism is in crisis. Among young people in particular, almost no one subscribes to a newspaper. The problem is: advertising alone cannot finance high-quality journalism.
We are convinced that high-quality journalism has a future. The current offerings, however, have serious flaws. Publisher subscriptions are too rigid, their apps are outdated, and their news selection isn't diverse enough. We want to change that.
Cluster offers a novel news experience. The platform works like a modular newspaper. News readers subscribe to individual journalists. Automatic topic sorting, personalization and social features support them. By doing so, we make high-quality journalism sustainable, for a society that is well informed.
