In the words of our Patron

The Ken is the pioneer in the space of subscription journalism – a model that brings out high-quality journalism in a sustainable fashion. I also love the focus that they bring by covering just one story a day, across a diverse set of industries and verticals. Particularly, the 360-degree perspective that they bring out in their stories have been an eye-opener for me.

There are lot of deserving readers who find lot of value in The Ken but cannot afford it. By becoming a Patron, I intend to achieve two objectives: Support The Ken’s unbiased high-quality journalism, and unlock The Ken to deserving readers who would benefit the most from it.”

Here's what our recipients have to say

“A Patron subscription helped me get access to some great quality content on the The Ken. It has fuelled my learning by creating an awareness into the latest happenings in my industry.”

Shubham A

Tata Institute of Social Sciences

“I recently came across The Ken and have been very impressed with the quality of the articles. A Patron subscription definitely helped me both personally and academically. The summary of the very first article that I read, namely “GST’s attack on pharma’s weakest link: distribution”, was intuitive and that led me to go through the entire archive which is very fascinating. I’m already a huge fan of The Ken

Harshith

CA Aspirant

“I’ve been investing in the stock markets since the past two years and have made good returns – which I attribute to luck not skill. However, I wanted to make consistent returns because of my skill. That’s where The Ken helped me. For instance, the story on Suzlon helped me make an informed decision about investing in the company because I finally understood how government policy and regulations can dramatically affect businesses”
