Stringr, a video-focused startup that says it can help news organizations adapt to the challenges of COVID-19, is announcing that it’s raised $5.75 million in new funding.
“I don’t think it’s lost on anyone that media companies … the business model, even more than before COVID, has been challenged,” Stewart added.
The new funding comes from Thomson Reuters, as well as previous investors G5 Capital and Advection Growth Capital.
It sounds like the Reuters investment is part of a broader partnership where the wire service’s customers can request video footage from Stringr.
In fact, Stewart said that the startup’s work with Reuters is also pushing it to recruit videographers globally, starting in western Europe.
