Quartz was founded in 2012 to serve a new kind of business leader with journalism built for users first. Coverage of the global economy is organized around core topics and questions of seismic importance to business professionals.

More than 230 people around the world, including more than 100 journalists, with a significant presence in New York, London, Nairobi, New Delhi, Hong Kong, and San Francisco. Collectively, Quartz is published in 47 different languages, reflecting a global perspective and belief in a more open and connected world.1

More than 20 million people read, listen to or watch Quartz every month and more than 400 blue chip brands have chosen Quartz as a vehicle to connect with this community through advertising to product and content solutions to research and strategy. Quartz is led by co-presidents, editor-in-chief Kevin J. Delaney, and publisher Jay Lauf.

In July, 2018, Quartz was acquired by Tokyo, Japan based media company Uzabase developer of the popular news app, NewsPicks.2

In November, 2018, Quartz announced a paid platform and intention for the app to be an alternative to social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.3
