Mission

Traditional news media publications create content that dictates a story rather than speaking to its readership. Elite Daily was created out of a growing discontentment with antiquated media publications mandating that news coverage be presented in a dull, one-dimensional manner. The Elite Daily ethos is centered on reader engagement and fostering a true, unique connection with our readership through a platform that facilitates discussion rather than blandly presenting news. Elite Daily’s founding members grew tired of consuming disingenuous content and created a highly-engaging, social content platform that would radically change and redefine the meaning of a media publication, with millennial voices speaking directly to their fellow members of Gen-Y who share a similar passion for informative content.

Philosophy

We strive to engage and stimulate our audience through viral content that facilitates discussion amongst Generation-Y. Elite Daily’s content is a natural amalgamation of the voices of your millennial peers—curated specifically for Generation-Y, by Generation-Y. Dissimilar to previous attempts at engaging millennials, Elite Daily employs a completely authentic voice rather than calculated, research driven marketing.

Generation

Elite Daily is an anomaly in the world of media publications due to our staff being entirely comprised of millennials, including our 600+ contributors. Our tagline, “The Voice of Generation-Y,” not only reflects our commitment to delivering content specifically targeted to Generation-Y, but also authentic content shaped by talented media professionals of the same demographic.

Our generation is unfairly stereotyped as lacking aspiration, heralded the “ADD Generation.” However, we embrace this moniker: the work we create reflects the frenetic, creative spirit associated with ADD. The world is at our fingertips, and our curiosity for knowledge allows us to present you with a multitude of content that converges into an engaging social content platform. We refuse to consume uninspiring content and spur our readers to do the same.

Voice

Elite Daily remains unparalleled in its ability to provide Generation-Y with a sounding board for its contemplations – and while these thoughts will never be entirely in agreement, the dialogue created from these articles leaves all parties more enriched. The sheer volume contributors to the site, of all ages and nationalities, provides distinct and diverse perspectives to each and every topic we broach. We leave no stone unturned, and every topic, be it controversial or not, is explored through a variety of lenses and perspectives.

Culture

Elite Daily has fostered a company culture comprising of hardworking, aspirational individuals with a mutual respect and appreciation for the development of new media. We’re all very different people in a generation far too big to be qualified, searching for truths, happiness and success – just like you.
