Circa

More and more people are relying on mobile as their primary source of news yet the content itself continues to be produced in a format that translates very poorly to mobile devices. Rather than trying to shoehorn existing content into a new environment, Circa is creating the first born-on-mobile news experience. It will deliver news in a unique format – native to mobile devices with an experience intuitive to mobile users. Through comprehensive yet to-the-point news updates paired with an engrossing mobile experience, Circa redefines how news is produced, delivered and consumed. Circa is news reimagined.

Circa was founded by Matt Galligan, Ben Huh and Arsenio Santos in 2011.
