Kinzen is a daily news experience defined by the positive choices and shared purpose of the people who use it.

We think there’s a better way to understand the world around us, so we’re starting again: building a news community from the ground up. That community will be built on trust in shared facts and valued sources. It will grow out of the best intentions of its members, not the worst instincts of the crowd.

Our goal is to put every individual in control of a news experience that is safe, relevant and empowering. Privacy and security are central to our work - not an obligation or an afterthought. We won’t depend on advertising or hidden algorithms, so our only agenda is yours.

We’re just getting started.
Now is the time to make a difference.

  • Join our network of curators, and help lead our members toward valued sources and shared facts on the topics that matter to them.

  • Become a patron and make a donation to support the work of our journalists, researchers, engineers and designers.

  • Help us test early pre-releases of the Kinzen app, which members will use to create a news routine that perfectly matches their daily lives.
