Who reads Future Startup? Who will I be writing for? We have over 8,500 registered users, 40k+ monthly readers, 14,000+ 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) and technology policy. 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, fact-based and all claims are 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.
