5 newsletters you need to sign up to get your tech fix

Staying on top of everything that’s happening in the tech world can be an exhausting task. Every day we are bombarded with startups announcing new funding, shiny products being released, the latest data-breach scandal, and many, many more news breaking every minute or so.

And here’s where the beauty of newsletters come in as they help you save time by listing all the must-reads in one place. The tech industry sure is full of them, but some are precious gems. Carefully crafted with not only the news you absolutely have to know but also some curiosities that can come in handy on your next networking event, making you look good as an empowered and informed member of society.

Here are some of our favourites at CEW that we definitely recommend you sign up for.

The Download
This well-rounded daily round-up by the MIT Technology Review has everything you need to know about tech. Edited by Charlotte Jee, this newsletter is, as they put it themselves, a “daily dose of what's up in emerging technology”. This one is short and sweet, focusing on the most interesting stories of the day. The newsletter also has a ‘Top 10 Must-Read’ section, perfect for people on the go with not much time to do the complete rounds on all tech websites to see what’s what. Kudos to the ‘Quote of the Day’ section - a personal favourite of mine.

Femstreet
Femstreet is the only thing that will make me check my work email every Sunday. This weekly newsletter is put together by Sarah Nöckel, B2B SaaS Investor at Dawn Capital. It focuses on women in tech, entrepreneurship and diversity in Venture Capital. Sarah has really turned the newsletter into a community with its own Slack channel. There, women from all over the globe share their insights, experiences and advice.

Lady Bits
This monthly newsletter is edited by The Next Web. Made by women and for women (but guys - you CAN and SHOULD read it too!), it highlights women’s stories in tech, in a more lighthearted way. It brings a mix of serious news with memes. Despite its controversial debut, it is a newsletter that will certainly bring a smile to your face and evoke many ‘oh no they didn’t’ kind of moments.

Sifted
As most people working in tech already know, Sifted is the FT-backed media site “telling the untold stories of European tech”. Its daily newsletter is a gift that keeps on giving. Edited by Amy Lewin, this newsletter won’t give you the breaking news, but it will give you the most interesting stories that you never thought you needed to know.

Steve’s ITK
No tech newsletter list would be complete without Steve O’Hear’s ‘Steve’s ITK’. One of the most prolific writers in the tech scene, Steve gathers all the pieces he’s recently published, comments, updates and even rumours all in one place.
