The principles of Unicorn Journalism
We are extreme digital nomads. We are digital indians. We travel with the seasonal cycles from country to country. We work from on the road with a solar battery in our tent or mobile internet on the river bed, in CoWorking Spaces or in cafés with WLAN. We travel with our e-bikes from place to place of our digital reporting.
We ride the e-bike because we want to show that digital technology and the stay in the green nature are a harmonious combination. We practice the working form "Green Work".
European Journalism after John Rawls
We are convinced that business journalism must serve to help minorities and reduce privileges. For this reason, we are guided by the principle of fairness of the economic philosopher John Rawls, which states that social and economic inequalities are to be shaped in such a way that they can reasonably be expected to serve everyone's benefit, and are associated with positions and offices that should be open to everyone. That is why our reporting particularly includes the perspectives of youth, migrants and women, the latter accounting after Eurostat for only 17% of senior management positions in the European Union. Young people and children are generally regarded as the losers of the corona crisis, and that is why we pay particular attention to Europe's youth in our reporting.
Solution-oriented MoJo journalism
We write and produce audio and video pieces constructively about the solutions to economic and social problems, instead of just naming shortcomings. This is referred also as „constructive journalism“. As reporters of a new generation, we work consistently digitally and are committed to so-called mobile journalism (MoJo).
We offer a clear explanation of complex technological and economical causalities. Simple and presice language is our strength.
We have the know-how and the ability to structure huge amounts of data using the analysis of artificial intelligence. In this way, we find connections that often remain hidden from the mere subjective view of a journalist. Data-based journalism offers us a further factual basis.

Topics of Unicorn Journalism in 2020
The Journalistic key question of Unicorn Journalism is: WHERE IS THE MONEY AFTER COVID-19?
Economic corruption or fair state aid?
In many EU countries, a major debate on distributive justice was conducted during the Corona crisis. We examine the question of which companies were "systemically relevant enough" to be saved by state aid and which industries were affected by the largest wave of insolvencies. We want to compare the similarities and differences according to which different EU national states prioritized their state aid.
Political corruption or legitimate emergency measures?
To what extent has Corona corrupted the political process? In Poland, the national parliamentary elections have been postponed, in Hungary, emergency laws have been put into effect by the government in a coup d'état, with false testimony punishable by up to five years in prison. We want to investigate which laws are still in force after the Corona crisis and how the legislation of nation states has changed permanently, thus denying political advancement to fewer beneficiaries and poorer people.
Digital systems versus traditional bureaucracy
The Baltic states Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia have had a lower Covid-19 infection curve than the Western states. We want to investigate how these "digital tiger states" have reacted to the crisis. Our focus is especially on the "digital superstate" Estonia, where citizens were able to report their Corona sick leave online in the national health register within days - a register that many EU states do not even have yet. State-imposed agility and a national market model that is consistently geared towards digital technologies may have done more to save lives in the crisis situation than the policies of continental states whose market economies are dominated by calvinism and catholicism. Based on the analysis of these states, we like to describe how crisis situations can be better mastered in the future with little effort but the highest digital efficiency.
A new era: The resilience of digital companies
We want to find out which companies with consistent digital business models in Latvia, Lithuania and Sweden have survived the crisis particularly well and which common prerequisites they share in terms of management style or internal organisational processes.
We examine the relationship between Russia, the European Union and the US regarding recent measures of counterintelligence during Covid-19. This topic is part of the price grant which was awarded for Valerie Lux as „Young German Journalist for Economy of the Year 2018“ by „Friedrich and Isabell Vogel Foundation“.
The definition of social entrepreneurship is to help alleviate major societal problems through private entrepreneurship. Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohammed Yunus is a social entrepreneur, his Graham Green Bank helps citizens out of poverty by successfully providing microcredits to women for decades. On our journey, we will pay special attention to companies that operate profitably according to these principles and set an example for other founders. We report on companies in the EU trade register that have created profitable balance sheets with social visions and profitable business models, that have survived the crisis and are role models for other founders.
