Entrepreneurs, investors and members of the London tech start-up community gathered on Thursday to celebrate The Kernel’s launch and to give us their feedback about our first two months in action.
On Thursday, an invited audience of London’s technology A-list filled the offices of Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe in London to celebrate the launch of The Kernel and to let us know what they thought of our progress so far. At the party, we announced that The Kernel is now actively seeking funding to expand its editorial operation.
We also announced that The Nutshell, the weekly newsletter that is taking the London tech community by storm, is to cost £1 a week from this week. This change will be followed in April by a selective paywall on the website, with some content – particularly our lengthier reports, essays and interviews – accessible only to subscribers.
Existing Nutshell readers will shortly be sent an email explaining how they can claim free Kernel membership for life by signing up for The Nutshell for just £1 a week now. There’s still time to subscribe to take advantage of this offer.
We value our content and the time it takes to produce, and it is our belief that readers do too. The positive responses from readers to our launch has been overwhelming, and we are humbled and grateful for the feedback, encouragement and criticism so far.
The Kernel could not exist without the kindness and support of the European community. Our sincere thanks in this case to Orrick for hosting our guests on Thursday night, particularly to partner Kolvin Stone and to Ruth Heyburn.
