Detailed Description

Update is a real-time market for breaking news. We enable media companies and freelancers in Syria, Libya, or Occupy Wall Street to take the amazing content they shoot, and sell it in real-time to the likes of BBC or their local paper, get paid for it, and have it on the air in a half hour. We are building an Ebay for breaking news.

Recent Accolades: Winner Distilled Intelligence, Winner Startup America, Top 5 Knight News Foundation, Winner Tech Buzz, Best of Buzz at Capital Connection, Graduate Founder Institute, Graduate Mindshare, AOL Fishbowl Labs, and much more.
