Can you tell us a little bit about yourself ?
I like experienced people who go off the beaten track and who realize original projects. With PG5i we have built a network of writers / translators and together we fight to prove that the Internet can be a fantastic tool for spreading knowledge.
Can you tell us about what your business / project ?
PG5i is a website of economic, political, social and cultural information currently covering the news of the countries of Central Europe, soon Eastern Europe. In addition to a network of journalists based in the countries concerned, we have also signed partnership agreements with several publishers including the Prager Zeitung (Czech Republic), the Budapester Zeitung and Budapest Time (Hungary) and the Allgemeine Deutsche Zeitung (Romania). ).
How did you get the idea ?
The idea of launching PG5i, was born from a simple observation: these territories are only episodically covered by the Western press. We thought it would be useful to fill that gap. Indeed, it appears that from year to year, these become an essential engine of development. No week goes by without strategic agreements proving that they are no longer cheap labor stoves but that they have scientific, economic and cultural potential that can not be ignored. have nothing to envy to those of Western countries.
What have been some key factors in growing your business ?
Our French-speaking readers have one thing in common: a particular interest in the countries of Central Europe. PG5i’s mission is to present these countries taking into account their strengths and weaknesses.

With regard to digital products (PG5i only sells this type of article), Payfacile makes it easy to create PDF files with content worked by the editor around specific topics. We did not want, as a first step, to make a subscription offer conforming to those of most digital press editors; our ambition is to make independent information accessible to all, thanks to reduced rates, single or flat rate.
