What can I expect from a paid subscription?

Weekly posts for subscribers only.

This is my full-time job. I’m not running any other grifts. I’m not investing in startups. I’m not shipping these articles off to other places. You pay for a subscription and you get truly independent journalism. That’s the deal. I like the simplicity of it.

A Newcomer.co subscription costs $199 a year or $19 a month. You can also gift subscriptions.

Who is Newcomer?

My name is Eric Newcomer, and I run the Newcomer media company.

I wrote about the technology industry for Bloomberg for six years. I covered the ins-and-outs of the startup world for much of that time, breaking news on IPOs, fundraising rounds, and M&A. I published the video of Travis Kalanick arguing with his Uber driver and co-wrote the Businessweek cover story on Kalanick’s fall.

Before that, I was the first employee at tech news site The Information. I grew up in Macon, Ga. and graduated from Harvard in 2012. Today, I live in Brooklyn.

The publication is owned and operated by Newcomer Media LLC.
