Born five years ago in Paris as an innovative digital source for news and journalism, Worldcrunch selects, translates and edits the most relevant content from the best global publications, making top-shelf international journalism available in English for the first time.

With the launch of the Worldcrunch Story Lab, we are now offering our services for select brands, companies and organizations that are global in reach or globally minded.

Digital communication opens whole new ways to shape companies’ message. Sharing a vision and selling a product can now move faster, but it must also be smarter. Companies must inform and entertain, communicate their values, respect people’s time and intelligence and give them a reason to come back.

We believe that language and geography should never stand in the way of a good idea. We break down the invisible wall of language and then carefully select the most engaging, relevant content for your industry & audience.

Worldcrunch Story Lab provides content that stands apart, reaches farther and makes your readers smarter.

We have also recently launched Worldcrunch iQ, our exclusive contributor platform. You can learn more about it here.
