Write for Future Startup

Have a great story idea and think it’d be a good fit for Future Startup readers? We have you covered.

Can I write for Future Startup? Yes! We welcome contributions from founders, industry experts, entrepreneurs, writers, makers, thought leaders, and anyone who has a good story, useful insights, and inspirations to share. 

We’re looking for original, insightful, analytical, and well-written pieces. We prefer to go deeper into things and bring perspectives that are often overlooked or missed. We are detail-oriented. 

Who reads Future Startup? Who will I be writing for? We have over 10,000 registered users, 40k+ monthly readers, 24,000+ weekly email newsletter subscribers,—many of whom are founders and entrepreneurs, CXOs, industry leaders/decision-makers at major corporations, business and technology professionals, students, and faculty at business and engineering school. 

What can I write about? In terms of subject matter, we’ve been focussed on - technology (across sectors and verticals), startups (across sectors and verticals), entrepreneurship education (founder lessons, how to start and build companies, and anything helpful to entrepreneurs), different aspects of business operation such as operations, strategy, communication, marketing, growth, leadership, innovation, etc, learning, personal growth, and technology policy, etc.  We’re open to other business-related interesting ideas as well. We mainly focus on the Bangladesh market, for now.

What do you look for in a story? We allow the writers full freedom to do it in their own style. However, we expect the story to be well-reported, and fact-based, and all claims to be backed by evidence. We expect writers not only to report an event but also to offer directional insight into where the future might be heading towards. 

Multimedia: You can use graphics, charts, and other multimedia in reporting. 

Word limit: We don’t have a word limit per se if a story requires a lengthy narrative. However, our preferred story length is 1500-2500 words.

Contributor payment: We don't provide any remuneration to contributors at this point in time. However, we wish to change that in the coming days.
