Codebase Ventures Inc (CSE:CODE) (OTCMKTS:BKLLF) said Monday that its media subsidiary, Pressland, is extending its partnership with Study Hall, an online community of over 2,000 journalists contributing resources, news, analysis and original reporting for its members.
The collaboration allows Pressland and Study Hall to leverage their expertise to strengthen their missions to support media transparency.
Pressland uses artificial intelligence tools and natural language processing to analyze around-the-clock global news output and publish comprehensive, dynamic production data that can be used to identify misinformation before it spreads online.

The company said the partnership will “increase industry awareness” of Pressland’s battle against fake news with its unique data management platform.
Pressland publishes a digital magazine called News-to-Table, which serves as a platform for the media industry’s top thinkers to share their thoughts on the issues facing their industry.
As part of the arrangement, Pressland will continue to recruit Study Hall members to write for its News-to-Table publication. Plans to stage co-branded events for Study Hall members are also underway.
Study Hall was founded in 2015 in Brooklyn by Kyle Chayka and Enav Moskowitz to promote community and collaboration in the media industry. Chayka and Moskowitz, both working journalists, recognized the need for greater communication, cooperation and transparency between freelance journalists. The organization provides paid access to email newsletters, networking tools, contact databases, private chat rooms and industry intelligence.
“I’m in awe of Study Hall’s founders,” said Codebase Chief Strategy Officer Jeff Koyen. “In just four years, they’ve built the most exciting online community of media professionals. Their members are among the most well-informed and highly engaged journalists I’ve ever known, and we look forward to connecting with more of them.”
Pressland is helmed by Codebase’s Koven, a media industry executive with an entrepreneurial background.
“We’ve seen how technology can negatively impact journalism,” said Chayka. “But Pressland was founded by journalists, for journalists, and our members have consistently complimented their editorial process and willingness to collaborate. We’re very excited to continue the partnership as we both grow.”
Codebase Ventures invests in early-stage technology opportunities that offer big returns. The company is based in Brooklyn, but team members are based globally from Belgrade to Vancouver.
