The phrase, in its succinctness, sums up everything The Quint has managed to accomplish in its three years off the ground. At the start of its fourth year now, the news-plus platform has launched the country’s first-ever WhatsApp News-Plus Channel. What this essentially means is that the reader/viewer/news enthusiast can now access the publisher’s content on the app, on the go.

The Quint, in the last three years, has been the fastest growing digital-first new platform in the country. It currently clocks three to five times the number of unique visitors and page views than any of its counterparts (Source: ComScore data). It won three Gold and two Silver at the South Asian Digital Media Awards in 2017. In the same year, it also picked up a total of eight awards at the Digipub Awards. It started off the current year on a high too, bagging seven awards at the Vdonxt Awards, presented by Adobe.

The Quint has always been ahead of the curve with groundbreaking formats and content for digital – giving the Indian audiences an unusual twist on news. These three years have been a great learning experience for The Quint, but like I said, we’re only getting started.

The platform currently has a monthly social media reach of 150 million users and sees 400 million impressions a month. Across the website and its social media channels, The Quint has over 75 million users.
