Tens of thousands of subscribers, working at the world’s most successful companies, have made The Ken into a daily reading habit
Articles are generic, almost cookie-cutter in their approach. And they don’t provide enough context on the issues they cover. The Ken is different. I don’t always agree with everything they say but I appreciate their commitment to publishing deeply reported narratives and investigations. Their reporters find new ways to analyze tech among other industries. And that’s always worth a read.
A personal subscription to The Ken was a no brainer. But as startup founders, this isn't enough. Team members also need to be in the know, for everyone handles customer-facing responsibilities and an ecosystem change that impacts customers also impacts us
The policy & execution is in quite a mess. the flip flops on KYC, the insidious use (& abuse) of consent, the hopeless competition with zero-balance Jan Dhan accounts - all brought out starkly. Congratulations!
that shape our understanding of businesses around us. With placements around the corner, Ken is a great resource to prepare and ace our interviews.

What is The Ken?
The Ken is a subscription-only business journalism website and app that provides coverage across two editions - India and Southeast Asia.
What kind of stories do you write?
We publish sharp, original and reported stories on technology, business and healthcare. Our stories are forward-looking, analytical and directional — supported by data, visualisations and infographics.
We use language and narrative that is accessible to even lay readers. And we optimise for quality over quantity, every single time.
What do I get if I subscribe?
For subscribers of the India edition, we publish a new story every weekday, and a newsletter on Saturday.
For subscribers of the Southeast Asia edition, we publish a new story three days a week, and a newsletter on Friday.
The annual subscription will get you complete, exclusive access to our archive of previously published stories for your edition, along with access to our subscriber-only mobile apps, our premium comment sections and several other gifts and benefits.
Does a subscription to the India edition grant me access to Southeast Asia stories? Or vice-versa?
Afraid not. Each edition is separate with its own subscription plan. The India edition publishes stories focused on India. The Southeast Asia edition is focused on Southeast Asia. We may occasionally cross-publish stories from one edition to the other.
Do you offer an all-access joint subscription for both editions?
Not yet. If you’d like to access both editions, you’ll have to purchase two subscriptions separately - one for India and the other for Southeast Asia.
Do you offer any discounts?
No. We have a zero discounts policy.
Is there a free trial I can opt for?
We don’t offer any trials, but you can sign up for a free account which will give you access to the weekly free story, our archive of free stories and summaries of the paid stories. You can stay on the free account as long as you’d like.
Do you offer refunds?
We allow you to sample our journalism for free before signing up, and after you do, we stand by its quality. But we do not offer refunds.
