"VC Newsletters" is a vague headline, right? We mean, (a) newsletters from journalists who cover VC, (b) venture capital firms that have their own newsletters, and (c) platforms that serve the VC world. Most of the 24 newsletters listed (half from Substack) are pitchable, though it won't be easy.
Updated Jun. 22, 2020 -- Few things are tougher than building a useful list of reporters who cover funding rounds. Technically, any beat reporter could cover funding news based on the startup being a contender in an emerging marketplace. But PR folks mostly seek reporters who cover funding rounds from any VC in any market -- as they should.
Literally hundreds of reporters cover funding announcements each year. The vast majority aren't "VC" reporters; they may cover a particular vertical, a tech beat, or local businesses. When funding news happens, they bang out a story they may barely understand. These 13 VC targets get it, as well or better than your clients get it.
