For the past 13 years, YourStory has been on a mission to tell the stories of the trials and triumphs of entrepreneurs, changemakers, innovators, and problem-solvers — giving them a platform to shape the narrative of the Indian startup ecosystem.
And now, as India’s digital economy has steadily captured the world’s attention, we saw the need for an objective news and analysis platform that provides insights and analysis to enable decision-makers to make high-impact strategic decisions.
A gap we’re filling with the launch of The CapTable, YourStory’s premium subscription product that will provide deeply reported stories on India’s new economy.
The CapTable will deconstruct India’s new economy and uphold YourStory’s values of telling authentic stories, breaking important news, providing actionable insights, and delivering objective, incisive, and fact-based analysis of the digital economy. The platform will provide insights that will cover stories on the intersection of entrepreneurship, technology, and policymaking.
As YourStory’s premium subscription-based editorial platform, The CapTable will be an optimistic critic of India’s tech and innovation-led ecosystem at a time when India aims to become a $5 trillion economy by 2025.
Led by a team of experienced editors and reporters, the platform has already been the first to report on Freshworks Founder Girish Mathrubootham and Eka’s Manav Garg setting up an $80 million SaaS fund, provided insights on Zomato’s turnaround in 12 months, and published an interview with entrepreneur and investor Balaji Srinivasan on why India should not ban cryptocurrencies.
With most of the people in India still in the middle and lower-middle classes, the need for having the right life insurance is important. Keerthi Kumar Jain, CEO of InsurePays.com, says that the startup plays the role of a catalyst without directly incentivising people by creating an ecosystem of over 25,000 partner brands, rewarding positive behaviour and encouraging people to buy insurance.
