Frequently Asked Questions

  • What should I write about?

    A good place to start is the question: what do I know now that could have helped me when I first started?

    The e27 community would love to hear your best analysis, reporting, ideas, and essays about your experience. Founder journeys, fundraising experiences, workforce management guides, entrepreneurial advice, technical how-tos, and productivity tips are very valuable to our community.

    We also encourage editorials and opinions about the current issues affecting the startup ecosystem. If there is something you feel strongly about and believe that you can add value and offer fresh perspective on, then let’s get the conversation started!

  • Is there a word limit?

    Articles should range from 700-1,500 words; just enough to be able to serve as a resource for the Asian tech community and not be overly self-promotional.

    Does this mean that any shorter and longer will be rejected? Not necessarily. Shorter articles accompanied by videos or infographics are welcome. Longer articles will also be considered under the conditions that all content are relevant and makes the article stronger.
