About

Techshaw is a digital media outlet covering Pakistan’s startup economy.

It was founded in 2014 as a standalone blog and later refreshed as a newsletter in late 2019 to document ecosystem news and startup funding. We* are known in the ecosystem to provide accurate, transparent, and timely startup funding data every quarter.

We aspire to be different by bringing you timely narratives, data-driven analysis, and informed opinions.

Our core is data, and our aim is to build on that.

No scoops. No breaking news. No clickbait.

Our mission is to inform and inspire startup builders by crafting sharp narratives and providing meaningful insights. Our goal is to be the most reliable source of information on the startup economy in Pakistan.

We value your attention and appreciate your time. And for that reason, we don’t track you, bombard you with ads or popups, and don’t accept paid stories.

But we need to keep the lights on. So we plan on selling sponsorships in our newsletters and podcast in the near future. We also sell access to our startup funding tracker. It’s how we currently support ourselves.
