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.
