We Love What We Do.

Business models for online news are developing in ways that threaten the civic value of journalism.

We’re here to change that.

Versa is a media technology company founded on a deep belief in a thriving press and an informed, engaged public.

What We Build

Our product is Featured Perspectives, the only technology-driven platform that gives thought leaders and issue experts the ability to attach commentary directly to a developing news story, generating premium revenue for publishers and giving readers access to high-quality opinion alongside the news in real time.

Where We Work

We work mostly over Google Hangout, owing to the fact that we're based in the three beautiful, buzzing cities of New York, San Francisco and Philadelphia. And once a year we pick up and co-locate, in fabulous destinations like Miami and Lake Tahoe.
