SmartBrief Curation

SmartBrief was founded in 1999, and the premise behind the company is simple: There‚Äôs too much information out there and too little time in the day to read it all. Our editors help business professionals stay informed about their industries by selecting each day’s top news stories, summarizing them and distributing them via e-mail newsletters, mobile apps and on our website. When we source a story, the original publisher gets credit and a link back to the full article on their site. SmartBrief drives tens of millions of high quality page views to publishers each year.
