Photo: Getty Images/Composited by New York Keeping up with content trends can feel impossible. Consumer fatigue is a very real thing, and changing algorithms, emerging platforms, and shifting priorities in metrics can leave the savviest creators drowning in guessing games. Paul Jarvis — the designer-turned-writer who publishes the popular Sunday Dispatches newsletter — has learned not to obsess over what’s next, taking a slow, steady, and authentic approach to gaining loyal readers. It helps that when Jarvis launched Sunday Dispatches in November 2012, the goal was simple: Communicate his schedule to design clients. Articles were an afterthought, an attempt to make the newsletter less utilitarian and more interesting. Today, none of his 35,000 subscribers open Sunday Dispatches for his schedule. He ditched design completely a few years ago, having scaled the newsletter to a full-on career writing about working and living online.

Vouch, which offers business insurance specifically targeting startups, is today announcing a Series B of $45 million, led by Y Combinator’s Continuity Fund. The company was part of YC cohort that presented this past August, and between then and now it appears to have also raised a Series A of $24 million, with this Series B actually also closing back in September (I’m guessing the delay in timing was to coincide the news with the expansion of its service to California). PitchBook data indicates that Vouch’s valuation has also ramped up rapidly: it’s currently at $210 million. (Previous investors in the company … [Read more...] about Vouch raises $45M led by YC Continuity for business insurance that targets startups
Previous Next 1 of 9 For anyone who flies regularly, long security lines at airports are a norm. But with more of us traveling by air — especially with the 2018 summer season, which the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) expects to be the busiest yet — we can expect longer than usual lines. According to Michael Bilello, Assistant Administrator for Public Affairs at the TSA, checkpoint volume growth is anticipated to be up 4 percent, compared to 2017. And, more than 243 million passengers and crew will go through TSA screening during the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day In the past, the TSA had grappled with a shortage of agents to deal with the influx of passengers, which resulted in incredibly long lines that have forced passengers to endure hours-long waits or even miss their flights. Passengers confused about TSA checkpoint rules added to those wait times. In 2016, in Chicago, 450 American Airlines passengers … [Read more...] about More people are flying than ever, and here’s how the TSA is dealing with surges at airports

Photograph, Courtesy: Jungli CEO Leopards are Mukesh Ambani's inspiration. The Reliance boss once said he liked spending hours watching the wild cats and even takes business lessons from them. A new start-up is helping budding entrepreneurs take a leaf out of the Ambani book by taking them on wildlife trips, allowing them to bond over tiger and lion sightings, and even generate business among themselves. "This year, we intend to take at least 200 entrepreneurs and CXOs for our wild breaks across India," said Rajesh Madan, founder of Jungli CEO, and its website, jungliceo.com.
