Just over the last one month, NewsReach has experienced over 10 times growth in traction pertaining to signup requests for its one-of-a-kind content marketplace, which is presently in public beta on an invitation basis. The overall revenue of the company has seen a multi fold increase due to exponential digital adoption among the users, creators and  publishers, said a statement.

Content creators, publishers, influencers and advertisers desperately need an integrated growth environment.We at NewsReach are redefining the whole vernacular news and content ecosystem in India,” said Darshan Shah, co-founder, NewsReach.
