Who is Newcomer?

My name is Eric Newcomer.

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. This newsletter is my full-time job, so I appreciate every subscription.

The publication is owned and operated by Newcomer Media LLC.

What can I expect from a paid subscription?

Newcomer launched on October 26, 2020. Articles won’t be paywalled until January 2021. Signing up for a paid subscription now is an act of goodwill and an investment in my reporting. It also earns you access to the comments section. In January 2021, articles will go behind the paywall and I’ll end the 40% off launch discount. Your early support is greatly appreciated!
