About Us
The Quint is driven by the truth and the readers who seek it. What makes us different from most legacy media is that we consistently challenge the status quo — through in-depth, visually powerful, community-driven stories, features, and interactive multimedia formats.

Our team is a collective of reporters, storytellers, editors, producers, designers, and analysts, who have cut their teeth on the best news teams in the country. At the helm, we have some of the best minds in the industry who have honed their craft for years in the media and today, lead a fearless newsroom into 21st-century, cutting-edge journalism.

As a newsroom, we seek to be as diverse as possible, with a special focus on gender — such that our news represents the issues and voice of all sections of society. We are participative in our approach to newsgathering – with a robust citizen journalism vertical, My Report – and we partner with our readers in our hunt for fake news, through our WebQoof vertical. Our reporters fan out into deep interiors of the country for ground reports — finding stories that often get drowned out in prime-time debates. We have eminent authors writing for our Opinion section and we aim to bring as much diversity to the voices on our site as possible.

The Quint makes sense of the systematic chaos that is the world today and brings you the story however you want – on your phone, through videos, op-eds, infographics, animations, and documentaries.
How Are We Funded?
The Quint is owned by Quint Digital Media Limited, a company listed on the BSE Limited. Mr Raghav Bahl and Ms Ritu Kapur are the Promoters of Quint Digital Media Limited (formerly known as Gaurav Mercantiles Limited). Please refer to the corporate website of the company at www.quintdigitalmedia.com
The Quint’s Special Initiatives
At The Quint, we go beyond the daily headlines by diversifying into focus areas and community tools that are crucial to our journalism.
  • My Report: This is a community platform for citizen journalists, to tell us what’s making news on your home turf. The aim is to empower you – the citizen – to amplify and resolve community-based issues. The process is simple, direct, and personal. Reach out to the My Report team, and we will walk you through the procedure and guide you on how to tell your story more effectively and powerfully.

    Become a citizen journalist and report on the issues that matter to you. Reach out to us at myreport@thequint.com or Whatsapp us at 9999008335.

  • WebQoof: From using in-house technology to on-ground reportage, our fact-checking arm, WebQoof integrates multiple sources of information to verify dubious claims and forwards. In 2020, WebQoof became a signatory of the Poynter Institute’s International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) ‘Code of Principles’. IFCN principles are followed by fact-checkers across the globe to promote transparent and non-partisan fact-checking.

    As propaganda and hate-driven disinformation campaigns escalate rapidly, WebQoof has been at the forefront of exposing false viral claims and bringing out the truth. Today, WebQoof attracts a dedicated audience that not only reads our stories but also participates by bringing attention to claims circulating on social media. A video-first platform, WebQoof attempts to convert its fact-checked stories into quick videos, so it reaches a wider audience.

    Get your stories fact-checked. Write in at webqoof@thequint.com or send us a Whatsapp on 9643651818.

  • Special Projects: The Quint’s special projects include powerful documentaries, long-form investigative reports, and deep dives into issues of social and national interest. Our journalists often risk their lives and health to cover these stories to provide that extra edge to our audience’s understanding and involvement with the news. Many of these projects are developed over months, and several adopt innovative storytelling methods that are often first-of-their-kind in the industry. Check out our ongoing special projects here.

Focus Areas
As the world around us changes rapidly, so must journalism and news platforms, in order to stay useful to its readers. The Quint periodically takes stock of topics, issues, and causes that are relevant to the times we live in and ensures that these stories do not go untold.

Some of our top focus areas remain health and the COVID-crisis and its fallouts, gender, law, the economy and unemployment.

In addition, we are also building a new vertical around climate change, through detailed, on-ground coverage of vulnerable populations and landscapes. Through a mix of documentaries, special reports, expert interviews, and more, we hope to highlight the issues caused by this global crisis through the perspectives of those on the frontlines of it.

We will also be focusing on the upcoming UP Elections (2022), through a team of experienced political journalists who will be reporting on and from the state.
Supporting India’s Growing Digital News Media
The Quint is a founding member of the DIGIPUB News India Foundation, established to help ensure a healthy and robust digital news ecosystem. The platform represents digital news media organisations, with its membership open to digital-only ventures, as well as media commentators and independent journalists active in the digital news space. Together, the members of DIGIPUB News India Foundation aim to represent, amplify and evolve best practices that are independent and uphold the highest standards of journalism.
The Quint’s Membership Community
Our journalism aims to be extensive, yet inclusive; hard-hitting, yet sensitive — a platform for marginalised voices and stories from India’s remotest corners. But let’s be honest, these stories take up huge resources: time, money, manpower, and often, extreme risks borne by our on-ground reporters. Our members pay to keep the news independent, unbiased, and relevant. Their contributions not only help us meet our production targets but also ensure that these stories see the light of day.

We believe that the future of journalism will follow a collaborative model between publishers and readers, one that directly engages with the community, and actively seeks insights, inputs, and direction from our audience. To this end, we host a number of exclusive members-only events, ranging from special previews via QScreenings, participation in our monthly editorial brainstorms, and frequent AMAs with The Quint’s senior editors and leaders.
