Business Day Ghana is a digitally native news outlet, born in 2015, for business people in the new global economy. We publish bracingly creative and intelligent journalism with a broad worldview, built primarily for the devices closest at hand: tablets and mobile phones.
Like Wired in the 1990s and The Economist in the 1840s, Business Day embodies the era in which it is being created. The financial crisis that recently engulfed much of the world wasn’t just a cyclical decline or a correction or even a bubble bursting. It was a breaking point. And its shockwaves exposed a fundamentally changed economic order with new leaders and ways of doing business.
Our coverage of this new global economy is rooted in a set of defining obsessions: core topics and knotty questions of seismic importance to business professionals. These are the issues that energize our newsroom, and we invite you to obsess about them along with us. You can always reach us by emailing email@example.com
Business Day’s founding team includes veterans of some of the world’s highest-quality news organisations who have reported in different countries. Our main office is in the capital city of Ghana, Accra and we have correspondents and staff reporters in London, Chicago, Washington, D.C, Nigeria, Botswana, South Africa, Kenya and Zimbabwe. We expect to expand quickly to other locations pretty soon.
We’re also a nerdy bunch, embracing the opportunity to create a newsroom that is wholly focused on digital storytelling. We view the creation of Business Day as just the beginning of an ongoing process in discovering the best ways to report and deliver information online. Developers and journalists, sometimes one-and-the-same, sit next to each other in the Quartz newsroom as we continually iterate and experiment. We know that the future of news will be written in code.
As we build Business Day, we are focused on the touchscreen and mobile devices that increasingly dominate our lives. Our design began with the iPad foremost in mind, and we modified it from there to suit smartphones and, finally, personal computers. Your experience with Business Day should befit the hardware you visit us with and shift as seamlessly as you do from phone to tablet to laptop and back again. Call us a website or, if you like, a web app: Business Day combines the benefits of the free and open Web with the elegance of an application. We also have a weekly a printed newspaper that has nation-wide coverage.
In all that we do at Business Day, we embrace openness: open source code, an open newsroom, and open access to the data behind our journalism. We’ll try to be as transparent with you as possible about the decisions we make and where we are headed. You can also connect with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. And keep coming back to Business Day Ghana.
