  • Strategy. Story. Studio.

    Catalyst.

Always curious.

We’re a media company, agency, think tank, convener and consultancy. We explore the present, anticipate the future and create, collaborate and consult with purpose-driven brands, publishers, foundations, NGOs, arts and nonprofit organizations. We help them unleash the intelligence, influence and value of networked communities everywhere.

Our flagship web site, email newsletter, research and events connect a network of business, policy, social, civic, cultural, technology and creative leaders, journalists, marketers, entrepreneurs, artists, investors, philanthropists, researchers and educators who work for commercial, social and civic ventures worldwide.

We’re into work that matters. Once upon a time we loved technology. Then we hated it. It made us better, faster, smarter. Also crazy, sad and lonely. Where to go? A quest. We seek people and projects that inform, provoke, entertain and uplift humanity.

We Media is led by Andrew Nachison. You can also find him on Twitter and Instagram.

Obsession

We Media is also a big idea and a global movement. It’s about how we know what we know – through journalism and the systems used to produce it; through marketing, advertising, education, work, networks and our personal connections to people and organizations we trust; and through old and new kinds of stories that surround us in the social, mobile culture. It’s about politics, democracy and the power of us; and censorship, surveillance and the power of control. It’s about technology, entrepreneurs, investors, startups, causes, creation, disruption, information overload and a world of choice – and choices about how we live, learn and care for each other.

We’re obsessed with all of that.
