Voice Britannia - Free news UK startup

In May 2020, Voice Britannia was born. Our goal is ambitious; we want to become a trusted source of UK news and opinion, forever free to access.

Since our creation, going live during the height of lockdown, Voice Britannia has attracted 130,000 visitors, thousands of weekly readers, and a dedicated 600 people subscribing directly to our feeds. This is humbling, but also confirms a gap in the market.

We are an upstart / challenger news resource that has already featured some of the UK’s most popular political influencers. We have hosted voices with experience across the spectrum of British newspapers. Now we need seed capital to take us to the next level.

Voice Britannia has never and will never be interested in attracting wealthy investors, or charging our audience to access quality journalism. Instead, we are looking for small, individual donors to invest, getting in on the ground floor.

Generous contributions from ordinary readers will help us –

·      Hire a staff journalist
·      Invest in marketing to grow our audience
·      Attract further big-name writers to complement our dedicated and experienced freelancers
 
Right now, our story is fresh and exciting, but we also want it to be long and prosperous. Your donations will help us reshape the UK news media landscape for the better.

Talking personality as part-owner, Crowdfunding is something that we have been wanting to launch but have been very nervous about, as there is no coming back from a failed crowdfunding drive.  At the end of the day, money is the be-all and end-all of any business, and the funds we have are running low. If we manage to raise the funds, we will be able to run through into 2021, produce new content; and continue to grow. - Steve (Part owner/writer/admin).

(We don’t know if we are able to give rewards via this platform, but if you donate over £100 we will send you a Voice Britannia mug and some stickers! If by some chance we manage to raise more than we are looking for, we will hire a small office /studio to operate and create content from.)

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and hopefully, for donating. - Steve
