Miroslava Duma Exits Buro 24/7

by Charles Manning

Miroslava Duma took to Instagram today to announce her departure from Buro 24/7, the media company she co-founded in 2011. “Having stepped away from Buro 24/7 operational activity over a year ago, this final stage with the sale of my stake was a strategic plan and now feels like a natural step forward,” Duma wrote in the post. “I am confident that I leave the company in the most capable hands of my partners and the global Buro 24/7 team.

“This exit will allow me to focus on the development of Future Tech Lab, and other yet unannounced personal projects, as well as making more time to spend with my young family.

“Buro 24/7 has been an amazing journey, and I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved together. I wish the Buro24/7 team every success.”

I am announcing today that I am to sell my stake and make an official exit from Buro24/7, a digital media brand that I co-founded in 2011, which has now grown to 11 successful international editions and nearly 130 employees globally. Having stepped away from Buro24/7 operational activity over a year ago, this final stage with the sale of my stake was a strategic plan and now feels like a natural step forward. I am confident that I leave the company in the most capable hands of my partners and the global Buro247 team. This exit will allow me to focus on the development of Future Tech Lab, and other yet unannounced personal projects, as well as making more time to spend with my young family. Buro24/7 has been an amazing journey, and I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved together. I wish the Buro24/7 team every success.

According to WWD, Buro 24/7 suffered a loss of ad revenue in recent months as a result of offensive, racist, and transphobic comments made by Duma. In January, she posted a picture of flowers sent to her by her friend Ulyana Sergeenko, with a card that read “To my Ni**as in Paris.” Condemnation of Duma and Sergeenko on social media was nearly instantaneous and relentless, with many in the industry hypothesizing that the controversy would mean the end of both their careers.
