“Building a community like our ‘Freundeskreis’ is a lot of work. With beabee we get a tool that solves our admin pain points and gain time for more journalistic community collaboration.”

Georg Watzlawek

Bürgerportal Bergisch-Gladbach

An open source CRM for community-centred approaches to journalism is something I’ve dreamed of for years. I have a lot of hope it will solve the issues we have at the Bristol Cable, and that others will find it empowering.”

Our commitment

  • Trust-focused

Trust is the biggest asset for the success of a community newsroom. That’s why our development is guided by principles like transparency, openness, brand ownership and data ownership.

  • Relationship-driven

We focus on building the tools that help you deepen relationships with your community and increase the joy of participation.

  • Privacy-first

We put the power over your data back into your hands and make you independent from tools that sell out your data. We stay away from privacy-violating design practices.

  • Collaboratively built

We build beabee in collaboration with a strong network of newsrooms who are committed to changing how journalism is produced and funded.
