Gigaom began as a blog by one writer in 2006, Om Malik, and has grown into one of the most credible and insightful voices at the intersection of business and technology. Gigaom is a new type of media company with a business model that leverages technology, transparency, and access to information. The company’s growth has been propelled by great writers, journalistic integrity, industry depth and audience engagement.
Since 2006, Gigaom has grown into the leading independent voice on emerging technologies and the disruption of media. The Gigaom news network’s online audience of 5.5 million monthly unique readers relies on its definitive coverage of cloud, mobile, cleantech, consumer web and media. Gigaom Events bring together the people innovating, shaping and defining the ongoing evolution of the technology industry. Gigaom Research offers the highest quality research and analysis of emerging technology markets and the companies making a difference in those sectors.
Gigaom brings the best traditional journalistic and research values to the new medium of the web. As a company, we follow these simple principles:
- Gigaom reporters do not directly invest in companies they cover, and they do not write about companies where their family members work.
- Our founder, Om Malik, is a venture partner at True Ventures. He does not report on any True portfolio companies. If a True company is mentioned in any post or research report that we produce, we disclose that connection. We also don’t report on or do research on companies in which Om personally invests or on whose board he sits.
- Whenever Gigaom writes about a company that one of our major investors — True Ventures, Alloy Ventures or Reed Elsevier Ventures — has a stake in, we disclose that fact.
- Gigaom Research brings readers objective and editorially independent research and analysis. We vet each analyst by project to avoid conflicts of interest and other potential biases.
Gigaom articulates a vision for the future of connected technology in its news and analysis, enabling business and tech decision-makers to shape that future by helping them better understand the evolving landscape, latest trends and how key startups will disrupt these.
Gigaom events bring together executives and innovators from across the tech landscape to make news, spark discussion and deliver high-end networking opportunities. Our team consistently brings the most sought after, interesting speakers to the stage.
Gigaom Research delivers timely, actionable research on emerging technologies for entrepreneurs, executives, VCs, marketing communications professionals and other decision makers.
