New York City-based DocumentCloud helps journalists be more transparent and engaging and simplifies investigative reporting.
DocumentCloud, founded in 2009 by editorial and news application developers from ProPublica and the New York Times, makes it easier for journalists to publish and analyze document source material, and it keeps those documents available for future research, reporting, and review.

DocumentCloud is one of the featured startups at our SXSW Accelerator Kickoff on Sunday. If you are a journalist, writer, or blogger, stop by to learn more.
