Hackastory

About

We help local, regional, national and international organizations in media and journalism with developing digital stories, audience engagement and creating more impact with their core business: telling stories.

We are proud on our journey. We started with hackathons to explore and stretch boundaries in digital storytelling and we evolved into a go-to business for innovation in journalism. We worked in dozens of countries around the world. For example, from – of course – The Netherlands (our home) to Argentina and from South-Africa to the UK.

We are proud on our client base and extended network: from big cooperates to independent media outlets in closed societies. Most of the times is was the ónly independent newsroom in that country.

Quality journalism, excellent digital storytelling skills are – today more than ever – important. So, let’s create impact.
