Quartz Africa has launched
Our promise is to tell stories from across the continent for both local and global readers. Feedback and data from our readership in Africa indicate pent-up demand for stories told from the perspective of our writers, many of whom are locals or long-time residents of the cities and countries they cover.
There are 54 sovereign nations on the continent, with more than 54 different ways of doing things. We do not plan to tell the story of Africa as one monolithic entity. Yet increasingly there is a theme of innovation, modernity, aspiration, and progressive thinking that is common to many of these countries, particularly those in the same sub-regions. This will be the prism through which we approach much of our coverage.
The experience of Quartz Africa, which also includes the full coverage from all of Quartz’s journalists, will be automatically provided to readers in Africa at qz.com. Readers elsewhere in the world can access it at qz.com/africa. Please follow @qzafrica on Twitter, and reach out to us with longer comments at email@example.com. We’re also celebrating the launch of Quartz Africa with Quartz’s new Instagram account, which in June will feature snapshots from Africa curated by our editors. And don’t forget to sign up for the Quartz Daily Brief newsletter, for morning delivery in Africa or wherever in the world you live.
