Matter matters

metaLAB is happy to announce that Zeega has been selected to join the first cohort of startups in Matter, a new San Francisco-based accelerator for mission-driven companies committed to changing media and supporting media entrepreneurs building a more informed, connected, and empowered society. Matter will allow the Zeega development team including metaLAB’s own Jesse Shapins, Kara Oehler and James Burns to work alongside fellow media entrepreneurs tackling problems ranging from building a radically transparent society to the daily news experience of the future. The founding partners are The Knight Foundation, KQED and PRX. Matter is led by Corey Ford, whose background combines years as a filmmaker at Frontline with work at Innovation Endeavours, the early-stage venture fund of former Google CEO Eric Schmidt.
