New social media-driven destination to combine journalism with IBM Cloud and cognitive technologies

Startups have ended the industrial era and have become the net job creators in many major markets across the globe.

To follow this disruptive change, /newsrooms has launched TechPORTFOLIO, a social media-driven destination that covers the economic value and financial benefit of startup ecosystems as they emerge locally, nationally and internationally.

“TechPORTFOLIO will explore the most important transformations impacting technology, business and economic growth,” says Robert Delaney, VP Managing Editor, TechPORTFOLIO. “We're researching and writing about many layers of the ecosystems. TechPORTFOLIO will compare and contrast geographies, approaches, companies, and investment trends in order to understand and evaluate how startup ecosystems are changing.”

TechPORTFOLIO combines journalistic coverage and data analysis to profile startups, entrepreneurs, investors, academia and governments shaping startup ecosystems.

TechPORTFOLIO will use IBM Cloud and cognitive technologies, including data and machine learning as part of its journalistic approach to deliver insights relevant to the companies, startups and governments involved in the global startup ecosystem.

“IBM Cloud is the leading platform for data-driven cloud and analytics that enables organizations to meet market demands and open doors to more responsive and innovative ways of doing business,” says Nevil Knupp, VP of Cloud, IBM Canada. “By providing the best cloud and cognitive technologies, we are helping TechPORTFOLIO connect to the developer and startup audience and transform the way news is delivered.”

“The Canadian startup space is thriving and supporting a culture of innovation with organizations, like TechPORTFOLIO, allows IBM to contribute to a thriving tech environment that can strengthen Canada’s position as an ideal place to research and develop new technologies,” says Lila Adamec, Program Director, Developer Ecosystem & Startups, IBM Canada.

“TechPORTFOLIO will be a new kind of publication that incorporates data, social media and technology into its operating model and ongoing publishing,” says Leigh Doyle, Managing Editor, TechPORTFOLIO. “Editorial instinct and subject matter expertise will take us a long way in our analysis and storytelling around tech and startup ecosystems. When we combine those with our data and social media expertise, we’re able to go deep into subjects in ways that were not possible before. That’s exciting.”
