Minimum government, maximum governance. With every passing day, the interface of business and government policy is only getting wider. It is unclear, if some of it is by design or the lack of it. At The Ken, we’ve done a decent job of being on top of technology policy, the institutions behind it, and how it is shaping the ecosystem. Now, we are doubling down. Which brings me to Vandana Vats. 

Vandana joins us in New Delhi. She has been a business journalist for more than a decade. In her last assignment, she was with The Week. At the magazine, she wrote on consumer technology, banking, the economy and the intersection of policy and business. Vandana started her career in Mumbai with Business Standard, the financial daily, but she says it was Delhi where she learnt the ropes of writing on policy. At The Ken, Vandana will write stories on technology companies and government policy. When not writing, Vandana says she likes catching up on movies. She also enjoys traveling.
