Pressland is a data management platform, which is aimed at cultivating public trust in the media by shedding light on the news production process and holding stakeholders accountable.

"To realize Pressland's mission of restoring public trust in media, it's critical to collaborate with publishers and other like-minded media companies," said Jeff Koyen, chief strategy officer at Codebase, in a statement.

"With his connections and expertise, Anthony is uniquely qualified to forge these relationships. In this vitally important role, he will demonstrate to publishers the benefits of licensing their data on our enterprise platform."

Intertwined crises

Duignan-Cabrera added: "The news media is grappling with two life-threatening emergencies — loss of revenue and the erosion of trust in their product."

"Pressland is the first, and only, company to recognize that these two crises are intertwined. Our data platform will present the news business with a solution that helps the bottom line and rebuilds audience trust, and I'm excited to join the team."

Codebase Ventures is a Vancouver-based team that invests in the cannabis sector, technology and other emerging industries.
