About FoundryFox

Our Mission

To inform, inspire and engage a generation of female fans with socially relevant content around: food, travel, culture, news, health, fashion and beauty. With a strong focus on human stories and original video.

Our Vision

To build one of the largest, most passionate, and engaged female audiences on the planet. To represent a cultural movement of females and be the mouthpiece for their interests, dreams and goals. To provide escapism, inspiration and influence and to ultimately celebrate a new generation of sophisticated, smart and savvy females on their journey through life.

Why we exist

There are a whole generation of females who want more than just gossip / social / viral news. A generation who share common values and goals. A generation who want to be captivated and informed.

The female media landscape is littered with traditional media brands making the jump from print to digital. Few with successful execution. Even fewer backed with original, story based content about human stories and real female interests.

Why we’re different

We’re the home for 18-34 females who are looking for something more authentic, real and unifying -  celebrated through original, high quality content.

We celebrate stories, individuals and human endeavour where others focus on celebrity gossip. We’re not a legacy publisher with baggage - we’re digital and social first.

We’re about community - FoundryFox will be a collection of global fans, influencers, ambassadors and storytellers who all share our vision and values
