Feel Like The President With A Daily Morning News Briefing

Today’s Killer Startup: Briefing

Elevator Pitch:

Get a “briefing” every morning with a synopsis of the top five news stories from the day before.

 

Why It’s A Killer Startup:

There is so. much. news. on the internet. Whether you rely on Facebook News Feed or Twitter or actually go to more traditional sites and blogs for your daily dose, you know that it’s impossible to stay up to date on everything that’s going on, everywhere.

 

Well, if you’re the kind of person who likes to stay well informed but you’re overwhelmed by the sheer amount of info out there, Briefing has you covered. It’s a super minimal website (or email, if you prefer to get the news in your inbox) that gives you the rundown on the top five stories from the past day.

 

On the day that I’m writing this, two officers were shot in Ferguson, Americans don’t trust the government, homeopathy is bullshit, and eleven service members are missing after their helicopter went down in training. Not particularly uplifting stuff but then again when is the news ever uplifting?

 

If you want to take a deeper look than their quick synopsis can provide, Briefing includes links to news sites that go more in-depth. If, however, all you want is to be able to look smart around the office or at your next dinner party, Briefing provides the perfect news aperitif.

 

Fittingly, considering the name, Briefing is based in Washington, D.C. The President starts his day with a rundown on world events and while his briefing is for actual important stuff like running the country and keeping track of wars, your Briefing can be a great way to make sure you’re staying up to date on events outside of your immediate sphere. You can also check out Briefings from past days if you’re really looking to bone up on your news-related knowledge.

 

Be well informed. Sound smart. Get Briefing.

 

Tweetable:

Soooo you should probably be getting your #news from somewhere other than your News Feed. Get the daily @Briefi_ng
