We are an independent, private company funded by a number of private shareholders and family offices. As a result, business decisions, but not editorial decisions, take shareholder value in mind.
Blasting News is included in the consortium that was awarded funding through the Horizons 2020 initiative – with the EUNOMIA “fight against fake news” project.
Blasting News raised approximately Euro 3.0 Millions of equity capital, at different stages of its development.
Continuous funding is assured by a business model based on three pillars: advertising, subscriptions, and technology (provided as a SaaS, software as a service). The turnover of Blasting SA is undisclosed, confidential information.
Blasting News doesn’t receive sponsorships for news gathering efforts or editorial desks on a regular basis. However, if we do so, we clearly state it in any appropriate place.
