Because the continent of Europe is terribly fragmented, in more ways than one, and for a host of other reasons, there are few publications that have attempted to cover the European tech industry as a whole, let alone in depth.
To wit, it’s a daunting challenge and the obvious needs of the various ecosystems across the continent are currently met only by local (English-language or not) blogs and news sites, and larger publications that tend to scratch only the surface, focusing mainly on the happenings in major hubs such as London, Berlin, Paris, Helsinki, Stockholm and Tel Aviv.
We feel strongly that the broader European tech scene deserves something more. We believe that there is a clear unmet need for a publication to go both deep and wide and deliver data-driven analysis, news with nuance and context, opinionated but thoughtful commentary, combined with solid research.
We also believe there are certain regions in Europe, primarily (but not only) emerging markets in central and Eastern Europe, that are currently being underreported on. Too many great stories are being left untold, and we think the broader, global tech community would benefit if that weren’t the case.
Simply put, we’re not satisfied with the coverage of the European tech industry as it stands today, and to scratch our own itch we aim to produce the type of content we would like to read ourselves.
We are a team of writers and entrepreneurs with a knack for quality reporting. We’re devoted to highlighting the innovation that is happening all across Europe, and reporting on the trials and tribulations of its technology industry from a big-picture perspective.
