I’ll be honest, when I decided to start this newsletter I had no idea how long I’d keep it up or if anyone would bother reading it. However, as I publish the 15th edition
, the results are in. You seem to like it.
Subscriber numbers will soon hit 300 and open rates are running above industry average at more than 50 per cent. Better still, many of you have emailed feedback, which has encouraged me to stick at it on days when the last thing I’ve wanted to do is write more content.
And whether you subscribed recently or have been ITK from the very beginning, you’re in good company.
Partners and employees from over 20 VC firms have subscribed including Atomico, Balderton, MMC Ventures, Episode1, Passion Capital, Hoxton Ventures, Acton Capital, and E.Ventures.
Startups are also represented, such as Tado, Starling Bank, Rentify, Nestpick, Gousto, MusixMatch, Babbel, Adzuna, Habito, Weave.AI, Cleo, Hailo, Cognitive Logic, and more.
Staff from various accelerators and company builders are also ITK, including Sketch, Ignite, Just Eat’s foodtech accelerator, and Jaguar Land Rover’s InMotion.
Unsurprisingly, a number of journalists – some of whom are rivals – read the newsletter too, so I’m minded not to publish too much intel. They include hacks from Business Insider, Financial Times, and, of course, a few of my colleagues at TechCrunch.
Here’s to the next 15 editions.
