A service that helps journalists discover what’s happening before it becomes news by unlocking company information from public data sites.

Product

Sqoop helps journalists discover what’s happening before it becomes news. When Yahoo and Google inked their new search deal this week, GeekWire broke the news because they use Sqoop. Why is that important? Time means everything in journalism because the outlet that breaks the news gets the eyeballs and the associated revenue. Ultimately, Sqoop will be the network every reporter uses, and also how newsmakers reach those reporters.
