OpenWatch, which presented at media startup accelerator Matter‘s NYC Demo Day today,
wants to become a video platform for citizen journalism worldwide.
Founded in November last year, the company is at the start of its
fundraising process, with the hope of closing a fast seed round to get
things off the ground.
The purpose of OpenWatch is to create a global network of video
reporters and investigators who can expose important issues around the
world, co-founder and CEO Rich Jones tells us. The appeal of OpenWatch
is especially apparent overseas in countries where the press isn’t free.
