Ever hit the mythical “Inbox Zero”? It’s a great thing; unfortunately, in order to stay relevant, we also need to keep up with what’s going in the world. I’ve made the mistake of singing up for my fair share of garbage coupon subscriptions and the like – all of which get promptly unsubscribed once I receive 4+ emails a day – but there are also plenty of useful daily mailers out there, too. Check out a few that I’ve come to like a lot:
“Breaking tech news, daily in your inbox”. Their tagline just about sums it up. Topics range from tech stock to funding announcements to Uber’s debacle in India and plenty more. There are tons of interesting and exciting stories that come through here.
Wall Street’s morning reader. Short, factual blurbs that report on market trends across the world. It’s really useful to stay up on what’s happening in the financial markets, and it doesn’t take more than 5-10 minutes to read through.
The (sort of) new kid – and cool kid – on the block in terms of finding new products in the tech space. There’s a really tight knit community associated with the curators of this newsletter, and you’ll often see the same people submitting products over and over again. Regardless, there are plenty of creative and useful applications and product that come through this site on a daily basis. They also send out a themed collection (think: Design Tools for Beginners) everyday, along with the current top 5 submissions.
Mattermark is a data services company that keeps tabs on VC funding for companies in the US. They publish quarterly reports, comment on VC funding trends, and provide a list of relevant articles, blogs, and opinion pieces from VCs, founders, and more.
I’m going to be honest here… I don’t always read this one. It’s a great idea and a great platform; unfortunately, there is A LOT of content. You can subscribe to a Digest associated with any given city (sometime state) with any sort of burgeoning tech scene. Emails include upcoming events, controversial and poignant articles, and some occasional commentary. It’s a read resource, but be wary of subscribing to more than you can handle.
There are a handful of others I get, as well, but I’m going to save those for another time. Let me know if you subscribe to any of these newsletters, and hit me up with your thoughts.
