Free news and opinion platform for impact investors and tech startups, Conviction News launches

Full launch into Q2 with 13 + expert contributors in a few weeks of beta online, seeing 100% + monthly subscriber growth, 40% + unique visitors so far in April

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, April 14, 2022 / -- Conviction News (“Conviction”) has launched a new, not-for-profit media platform, following its first full social media campaign #ImpactAlpaca and ahead of the last feature in its first special series #CryptoClimate with six contributors, blockchain and sustainable finance experts. The fourth, bi-weekly Conviction Newsletter will be published Friday, 15th April to which new readers can subscribe for free to receive and access all content online - no tiers, no limits, no paywalls - unlike many publications with premium memberships that cost $400+ and freemium models $200+ in finance and technology.

Conviction is a dedicated platform for news that doesn’t always make the headlines. Readers are invited to subscribe for free, comment and contribute to an online forum dedicated to impact investors, tech startups and social enterprise innovation - news with expert insights from businesses committed to Sustainable Development Goals. Conviction aims for greenfield - between venture capital-focused and tech startup publications - neither fully serves both audiences, whether to source deal flow, attract inbound investment or simply raise profile. Conviction meets that demand with crossover content and at the same time facilitates the exchange of ideas for a more sustainable future.

Only a few media outlets with adjacent interests have no subscription and most that do have approached the space as an add-on to feed content-hungry search engines with similar, niche news and analysis that Conviction provides for free, forever. In the untapped space between venture capital and tech startup news, opinion and debate, Conviction draws upon expert contributions to understand the full scope of opportunities for innovation with positive impact for people and planet.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) themes of interest to Conviction include: climate tech, renewables, clean transport and mobility in the energy transition; foodtech, agtech and biotech for climate, food and water security; digital solutions for sustainability from those that enable the circular economy to carbon tracking platforms, and blockchain for carbon credits, trading and offsetting; carbon capture and storage technologies as well as nature-based sequestration and biodiversity projects; and, finally, social issues-led sustainable finance, social enterprise and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) thought leaders.

Conviction is sector-agnostic, broadly interested in the startups and investors that aim to create a more sustainable future for all, especially those with a mission closely aligned to one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Growth, Contributors & Campaign Highlights

Conviction has hit significant milestones in the growth of traffic online but, even more significantly, earned credibility from contributions of the likes of a global technology leader, Europe’s ABB, alongside investors, founders and executives of the next generation of tech titans in sustainability. Invited to subscribe for free, readers are also able to join the discussion at Conviction - for free - in the comments and as guest contributors. Guest ‘Views’ are highlighted in Conviction's own editorial content and the bi-weekly Conviction Newsletter.

Online since February, ‘beta,’ during which the first bi-weekly newsletter was sent 5th March, Conviction has and plans to continue operating on a rolling, two-week content cycle as between the first (5th March), second (19th March) and third (1st April) newsletters. Notably the third and latest edition coincided 1st April, providing cover for the #ImpactAlpha April Fools campaign and pastiche of a well-known brand and exclusive impact investing publication, plus content with wordplay like ‘Seeking Alpaca,’ another leading finance publication.

Conviction has so far received more than thirteen contributions in just over a month. In the first full week-long series with guest commentary, #CryptoClimate drew on founders’ expertise in crypto, blockchain and sustainable finance to better understand positive uses of blockchain technology, including carbon credits, offsets, marketplaces and sustainable finance more broadly.

Featuring one flagship op-ed from JustCarbon, the #CryptoClimate series also includes Likvidi, Moss Earth, Nori and Cofndrs. Guest opinions have included the crypto influencer Ivan Liljeqvist, Co-Founder & CEO of Moralis and Mayank Shah, the Founder & CEO of Minority Supplier Development UK (MSDUK).
