About Us

Corante is a leading news service on technology that's read by many of the sector's top entrepreneurs, executives, funders, followers and thinkers. An Internet-based information service that delivers targeted news coverage of multiple verticals via both its website and email newsletters, Corante is also helping to pioneer the emergence of blogging as an influential and important form of reportage and commentary.

Every day our expert editors scan hundreds of sources - finding, distilling and linking to the news stories, magazine articles, reports and related resources that truly inform and provide the context, perspective and analysis professionals need.

Corante cuts through the clutter to help its readers stay up to date, turn the raw data of news into knowledge, find sector intelligence they need to know about and save time.

We take our name - some inspiration too - from the enterprising British printer Nathaniel Butter. His Corante - which first hit the streets of London on September 24, 1621 - is widely considered to be the first English language newspaper. Corante 2.0 launched some 379 years later. Pronunciation: [core-AUNT]
