The target of FactWire is to get through the operation of first year and make higher social impact. He said the whole team will try the best to make FactWire better. “All the public fund-raise ($4.75millons) will be totally used in this operation, like hiring journalists and buying equipment. Also, there will be 12 journalists in total which divided into 3 groups: investigation, daily news and researching.” He divulged.

He said tentatively that the price of professional clients will be amount ten – twenty hundred thousand.

FactWire will be started operating on March 2016 which will be the first Hong Kong based news agency.
