Epilocal was founded on the big idea of levelling the online playing field for community-minded publishers. We want to make the best digital tools available to even the smallest, independent publications to help them create sustainable businesses.
We believe in open platforms that don't lock people in and open-source where feasible. We admire the mission of open, sustainably funded organizations like ghost.org and WordPress and aim not to create platforms that will duplicate or disrupt, but to compliment and support the ecosystem that small and independent publishers count on.
How our social business model works
Sales from our SaaS products subsidize our solutions for local news and are re-invested in product development
Epilocal is a social business, soon to be formed as a non-profit
We build affordable technology solutions for local news...
...and sell parts of that solution as SaaS tools for everyone
