Who are we?

Factinate.com was created by trivia nerds who have a passion for learning and sharing information. Factinate's primary goal is to provide our users with accurate and objective information. While we try to do so in an entertaining fashion, the accuracy of our facts always takes precedent over entertainment. This means that our articles tend to run a little long as our editorial team covers topics in a way that's both fair and comprehensive.

Factinate.com is wholly owned by Factinate Ltd., which gives our writers the freedom to have complete editorial control free from bias or conflict. At Factinate, we are committed to equality in both our hiring practices and content creation. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status, or any other characteristic. We believe in representing a diverse set of identities and histories in our articles, and our output reflects this.
