Ashish Mishra, a former Mint journalist joined TheKen for bringing his investigative reporting and long-form storytelling to the TheKen articles. TheKen is the yet-launching startup which is aiming to provide sharp, original and daily insight on tech, business, science and healthcare scene from India.
As per the blog post from the TheKen, Ashish Mishra was part of the team before this public announcement. He is the 4th co-founder alongside Rohin Dharmakumar (former Forbes India writer and Owntastic founder), Seema Singh (former Forbes India Senior Editor and Read Herring writer) and Sumanth Raghavendra (former InstaColl and current LiveIndox founder).
Here is what TheKen said –
“Since we announced The Ken 7 weeks ago, a bunch of readers and friends have asked us if we’re getting Ashish K. Mishra, (@akm1410) on board as a writer.
Well, we’d already done one better – Ashish was one of our co-founders. We didn’t want to disclose that fact publicly as Ashish was still a journalist with Mint, albeit one serving out his notice period.
But today I’m happy to announce that one of India’s best-known business feature writers is now a full-time part of The Ken.
The reason so many readers suggested Ashish’s name to us is because he has carved a great niche for himself as a writer who combines investigative reporting, gripping narrative and long-form storytelling to present complex stories in a way that readers don’t just understand, but enjoy reading too.
Over the next few months, we’ll introduce you to more of our new colleagues, all of whom we’re thrilled to be bringing on board and working alongside with.”
More people will be joining the startup, let’s see what addition mix they will bring and more importantly how they provide articles based on individual capabilities.
TheKen is officially launching on 1st Sep, so signup on their website or keep watching UnplugTech.
