The Ken is India’s first and largest subscriptions-based media company.
Established in October 2016, we publish one deeply reported, analytical and well-narrated story every day. Our subscriber community, the majority of who are in India, comprise innovative and successful entrepreneurs and senior executives; venture investors; policy makers; MBA students; and 100+ companies.
Apart from our subscribers, we are also funded by a set of stellar investors, including Omidyar Network. We are headquartered in Bengaluru, India with offices in Delhi.
We see ourselves as a Product-first company. We achieve this by making product-first thinking and execution part of our DNA across the organisation – both in our journalism and in the technology-led products we build. Our subscribers experience our products exclusively on our proprietary platforms —our website, CMS, and our subscriber-only mobile apps for Android and iOS.
The mobile app is a premium product that’s available only to our paid subscribers who are often iPhone users. In fact, nearly 40% of The Ken’s subscribers read us on iPhones. For contrast, this number is 2-3% for major e-commerce apps. As a result, our iOS app is carefully crafted, and we work hard to ensure that we offer nothing short of a best-in-class experience to subscribers who read us on iPhones.
