informed Press Kit

🛶 The mission

The informed app bundles and curates the best trusted news sources in the world. The curation is done by humans, not purely algorithms - out of a strong belief that smart human curation is the best way to provide different perspectives, a good mix of smaller and big publishers, Western and non-Western sources - all of them trustful, no filter bubbles, no misinformation. The curation is done by a diverse editorial team and selected experts. By doing so, informed wants to create a safe haven for news consumption - easy to access and easy to digest for mainstream and younger audiences.

Benjamin Mateev was a lead engineer on to-do list platform Wunderlist that was later acquired by Microsoft, where he spent several years as Product Lead for digital memory and to-do experiences. Earlier, he was also head of product at opinion news site The European where he gained experience with editorial products.

Martin Kaelble was head of digital and online editor-in-chief at Germany’s biggest business monthly Capital, where he gained a lot of experience with digital editorial products and paid products, also building Capital’s first paywall. Before becoming a journalist (first at the German branch of Financial Times), he spent several years in tech, for example at the well-known European startup Jamba.

Axel Bard Bringéus joined Spotify in an early phase and essentially shaped their rapid global expansion, as he was rolling out the company in Europe, Asia, LatAm and ultimately became the global head of markets. After that he worked as a startup investor, being a deal partner at prominent European fund EQT Ventures. In his early career, he also worked as a journalist for a short period of time at Svenska Dagbladet in his home country Sweden.
