Instagram, Reddit, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Facebook, Newsletters – the number of disparate platforms that we are engaging with to consume new content seems never-ending. River, a content discovery platform, encompasses all mediums to organize everything people are talking about online into bite-sized, shareable stories in real-time. River ensures that its community is fully anonymous, allowing users to discover new information and different perspectives than they may normally be exposed to through their own networks. AlleyWatch caught up with CEO and Cofounder Jeremy Fisher to learn more about the team behind River, the company’s future plans, and recent round of funding from investors that include Founders Fund, .406 Ventures, Box Group, Scooter Braun, Josh Kushner, and Raised in Space.
