A year in review: How e27 served the tech ecosystem in 2022

Coming out of the pandemic and into a war in Europe and now moving towards an oncoming recession, 2022 was no easy year. While the ecosystem and we at e27 were doubling our hustle to recover from the pandemic and move along our pivot decisions, a lot unfolded.

Here’s a little visual snapshot of how far along we came, what we did, who we partnered with and what we are proud of at the end of the day.

Facts and figures

Our social media and readership grew in absolute terms and vastly in engagement rates. We also doubled our article production and brought new community voices from the ecosystem to the platform. The connect requests soared, and we facilitated over 19000 startup-investor connections in 2022 alone.

Community building

The community is at the heart of everything we do, and this year nearly all our initiatives were directed at serving them deeply. With the ever-expanding Contributor Programme, we also started a work-life balance series to feature our regular contributors and share their life lessons and career stories with others in the ecosystem.

Echelon– our flagship event was brought back with a new format, and the community enjoyed seeing each other in person after a long COVID-19-induced hiatus. And even virtually, we worked with over 100+ ecosystem partners to lead and run innovative projects.

Product improvements

As we constantly strive to make the e27 platform robust and comprehensive, this year was many a first. We expanded the connect programme and launched a new tool to submit fundraising news and a Pro Content plan for affordable access to exclusive content. And mainly, the new homepage reflects all the amazing initiatives we work so hard to bring for you. Do check them out and let us know what you think.

Partners in the ecosystem
