Hello, we are Outriders.

We believe in strengthening the power of journalism to explain complexities of the world.

We aim not only to make great stories but also to experiment and find new ways to collaborate, for reporters to cooperate with media outlets on new projects, help freelancers work with new trends and we ourselves want to be a community driven platform. At the same time we share everything we learn and animate community of journalists and reporters.

We are a group of experienced reporters, designers, coders and editors who tell the stories of the world in their best-suited form. Our interdisciplinary approach provides our readers with dispatches from across the world, reports on global issues, opinion pieces on the future of journalism and a weekly newsletter. We believe that modern journalism should span beyond our borders.

Our main activities are:

  • Outride.rs – Portal where we present global issues through various interactive forms.
  • Outriders Mixer – knowledge sharing platform for reporters and storytellers worldwide.

Our Mission
At Outriders, we believe in strengthening the power of journalism to explain complexities of the world.

The Values of Outriders

We talk about the world because it is getting more and more difficult to understand and it has a significant impact on our everyday life.

A man and everything that affects us is at the centre of our activities.

We are a group of idealists who believe in objective and reliable journalism. We understand it as a public service.

We believe in journalism, its social mission and values. However, we approach it in an entirely new way, using modern technologies.

We have a lot of respect for each other, and we cherish good relationships. Unfair competition, appropriation of authorship and ideas is unacceptable.

At Outriders, we focus on the world because it has become increasingly difficult to understand. Moreover, whether we want it or not it affects what is happening in our own country. We describe the context of events that make the headlines. We are idealists who believe in credible and reliable journalism.

Outriders is a non-profit company. Thanks to this business model we can stay focused on our mission while maintaining the agile-like quality of a startup. Grants finance our projects, donors support, business projects income but most of all – by our readers. We don’t believe in paywall or hiding content from those, who don’t want to pay for it. It can’t be that people who have no money are cut off the excellent information.

By supporting Outriders, you make sure that our content will always be open. Social entrepreneurship benefits us all. We are the first media institution in Poland that chose to operate this way.

Support us, and we will keep contributing to good journalism.

Thank you!
