Project R

Project R is a Switzerland-based cooperative fighting for independent journalism, freedom of expression, public debate and a functioning democracy.

We are reclaiming journalism as a profession and are creating a new business model that places our readers at the center. Our digital magazine «Republik» (in German) will launch in January 2018. «Republik» is reader-owned, independent and ad-free.


Project R is an open-source cooperative, and we share our knowledge, software and business insights with other projects who also want to foster democracy and free speech around the world.

This May, we collected about € 3.1m in a crowdfunding campaign in which we sold nearly 14'000 memberships. We will start publishing in 2018 and are currently scaling up our team and building our editorial office.

Columbia Journalism Review: ‘Startup that promises ‘no-bullshit journalism’ nets serious cash’.
