The world of startups that are saving journalism is a small one. And it just got a little bit smaller. Online magazine PAPER is acquired by Blendle. PAPER is an initiative by Persgroep, one of the larger publishing companier in The Netherlands, but has been struggling to gain traction. The amount of money involved in the acquisition has not been disclosed.
PAPER is a curated magazine that selects the best articles from the publications that are part of the Persgroep company. Among them are daily national newspapers like Algemeen Dagblad, Trouw and Parool, as well as regional dailies such as Brabants Dagblad and Tubantia. For €5.99 a month, readers get access to an online magazine featuring the best they have to offer.
