After news of profitability, our post on privacy and data collection, let me shift the conversation back to business. Back to telling good stories. Back to journalists who do most of the heavy lifting. In that context, I’m glad we have another writer joining us. 

Vivek Ananth joins us from Cogencis. After dabbling with an auditing job and then at a software product company, Vivek decided to take the plunge into journalism. In his last assignment, Vivek was at Cogencis, a financial newswire. He says that it was his love for writing that got him excited about journalism. A Chartered Accountant, Vivek completed his post-graduate diploma in journalism from IIJNM Bengaluru in 2016. The man says he’s a knowledge hog but hasn’t yet learned how to stack reams of information in his head. For now, I’ve told him to focus. At The Ken, Vivek will write on the intersection of technology and business. Simply put, a world of possibilities for good stories. 

You can reach Vivek at first name at the rate the-ken dot com.
