Product

Circa is a new kind of media company that enables readers to more easily consume, engage with, and follow the day’s news by delivering comprehensive yet to-the-point coverage in a format tailored specifically for mobile lifestyles.

Our apps provide bullet point, Cliff's notes-like news stories that gives readers the facts without all of the fluff. We're also pioneering a new kind of news consumption where readers can subscribe to *individual stories* by following them, they later receive updates to those stories as they're updated over time by our editorial staff.

Circa is a refreshing new perspective on how news can be covered and consumed in our ever-changing mobile world.

Why Us?

Circa is a mobile news company that's delivering comprehensive yet to-the-point coverage in a format tailored specifically for mobile lifestyles, allowing readers to consume, engage with, and follow news they care about. Circa has been featured numerous times in both the App Store and Play Store, and has received accolades by both Apple and Google. With our signature “Follow” feature, Circa is the first news organization to provide readers with the ability to engage with specific stories they care most about by receiving timely updates as they develop. We were named Mashable’s No. 1 Startup to Watch in 2014, a VentureBeat Startup to Watch in 2014, one of The Next Web’s 20 West Coast Startups to Watch in 2014, one of Entrepreneur’s 5 Must-Watch San Francisco Tech Startups in 2014 and one of CNBC’s Five Startups to Watch in 2014.
