The Problem

An increasing number of legal and regulatory press releases, notices, and content are submitted to social media platforms and not traditional newswires. The goal is to fill the information gap with news from social media platforms and webpages that traditional news aggregators do not provide.

What The Company Does

Newsfetch has built an engine to extract content insights from news and social posts. The company monitors the major social media platforms for businesses, brands, customers, and competitors. It also does business regulation tracking and updates readers about changes in laws and regulations. Additionally, Newsfetch tracks press releases by topic and industry of interest, and scrapes government websites and imports and aggregates critical information. Specialized datasets it looks at from social media platforms include law firms, U.S. state governments, U.S. state health departments, local police departments, U.S. regulatory and quasi-regulatory agencies, and public and private companies.

The Market

Newsfetch will help library, marketing, and IT departments with significant return on investment. In 2019, the global digital content market size was $167.4 million and is expected to reach $397.4 million by the end of 2026. Competitors include talkwalker.com and mention.com.

Business Model

SaaS subscription model with tiers ranging from a free mode to professional and enterprise levels.

Traction

The company is being used in several large law firms, think tanks, and a few private companies.

Founding team background

CEO and Co-Founder Eric Gross is an attorney and entrepreneur. He has built several content companies including Ozmosys, a leading provider of content aggregation, search, alerting, and content delivery used by large enterprises to control both information overload and overlook. CTO and Co-Founder Boris Eibelman brings wide-ranging technological expertise and business experience to the team.
