Discuss: stay better informed, faster

Published on 17 February 2021

Discuss is a young start-up project by three SKEMA students who are looking to revolutionise the way we consume information in an era when social media is sliding towards “more and more content but less respect”. It has been incubated by SKEMA Ventures since it was launched a few months ago.

What’s the idea behind it? The current social media model has prompted the creation of a new independent format of influencers – in addition to the articles and professional content that were already present – but this has led to an overload of information. Add hateful comments to the mix, and the quality of content deteriorates rapidly.

Through Discuss, its founders aim to create a mobile app which will be home to a well-informed, respectful community of people who like to discuss.

The start-up launched a crowdfunding campaign on Ulule on 19 January to finance the creation of its mobile app. 

In this interview published by SKEMA Ventures, SKEMA students Maxime Dupuy, Matthieu Riff and Matthieu Poisson tell us their story, including how SKEMA Ventures has supported them, what it is like to launch a company to fight one of the issues caused by social media, and new ways of consuming information.
