In the words of our Patron

“At a time when coverage of business journalism in India was starved for original, well-researched, unbiased and analytical content, the Ken has managed to emerge as a source of just that for their readers like us. Creating value is core to the Ken’s offering and as a Patron, we, too, hope to contribute to their mission of enriching editorial content for users across India, who either can’t afford access or simply haven’t been exposed to The Ken’s insightful, high-quality and independent journalism.”

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”
