Album Corp. is an early stage startup, a bit of a skunkworks project, with the mission of building technology, especially in mobile, that will provide local news outlets with a rich feature set for engaging audiences and generating substantial revenue.
We have ideas. Lots of ideas.
Where others see an industry drowning, squeezed ever tighter by the constraints of disruptive technology, we see hope and opportunity. Arthur Sulzberger once famously fretted that the web turned print dollars into digital dimes. We know some media outlets now fear mobile will turn those dimes into pennies. At Album, we believe mobile can generate a river of revenue for local news.
We have a plan.
Our first goal is to attract seed capital for a minimum viable product we’re calling the Instant News App. We have a revenue model and are eager to see how it performs in a real-world market.
