Since its launch in late 2012, online publication Narratively has consistently bucked major media trends by looking beyond the news cycle and the constant click-bait, and emphasizing quality over quantity. The award-winning site explores one weekly theme and publishes one story a day—in longform writing, video, audio, animation, photo essays and comics—so that every story, and storyteller, has maximum impact.

After launching with funding from a successful Kickstarter campaign, Narratively has refined its business model and become a formidable, and growing, platform for journalists and their untold human stories.

What can this Brooklyn-based startup teach us about turning a mere idea into reality, and finding new models for sustainable storytelling along the way?
