Enzyme is dedicated to preserving the best practices of American journalism in a sustainable form for the digital age. We are journalists, experienced at finding news and information that matter to readers. We are practitioners of the written word, adept at building the narrative that engages an audience. Our roots are in the era of print, but we have our eyes firmly on the horizon, where public thirst for information inevitably propels readers to the Internet.
Portland’s Best Stories
Enzyme is dedicated to examining the issues that influence how Portlanders live their lives. While avoiding the partisan noise that threatens to overwhelm the Internet, we will examine the challenges, innovations and trends that affect life in our seven-county market. Our goal is to point the way for a more prosperous community, an improved quality of life and the sort of innovation that will help Portland continue to be an agent of change. Proactive coverage will dominate: What are the challenges? Who has the best ideas? How do we move forward?
How We’re Different
Our website is designed for maximum user utility and engagement. Instead of offering routine coverage and recycled content, we will seek out the untold stories that matter and present them in ways that modern audiences use to access their news.
An enzyme is a catalyst, a protein that activates a chemical process. We’re here to initiate the process that brings journalism back into people’s lives as a valued way of learning about the world.
