It's been a little over a year since we incorporated the UK company behind tech.eu, and 11 months since we launched the website.
Since then, we've worked hard to lay the foundations for what we envision to become the premier digital publication covering the European technology industry and startup ecosystem. We're well aware that this is only the very beginning of the journey, though.
We realise we still have a lot of work ahead of us, but we're very happy that our focus on unique, high-quality content and data-based reporting has struck a chord with many of you, and it's encouraging to see the audience for it grow every day.
In particular, the weekly newsletter we send every Friday afternoon has proven to be useful resource for many of you, and it's great to see the appreciation for our efforts to curate the information in it.
I promised a short update, though, and there are many things we are working on that we currently can't talk about yet. But here's a few things to keep you in the loop:
Firstly: since Leen Segers joined us as COO and head of partnerships last August, she's worked hard to build a sustainable business around tech.eu that will allow us to grow in size and depth. We're excited to announce that we've now put all the pieces in places to start teaming up with leading, premium brands for advertising campaigns, sponsored content and other types of partnerships.
If you're interested in exploring how you can partner with tech.eu and/or to receive a copy of our media deck, please follow this link, where you will find Leen's contact details.

Thirdly, we've struck partnerships with two of Europe's leading technology business events: the Web Summit (which takes place in Dublin next week) and LeWeb (December, Paris). We plan to do more of these in 2015; again, go here if you'd like to learn more about how you can partner with tech.eu.
Finally, you will be happy to learn that we're about to start sending a redesigned weekly newsletter that will do an even better job at giving you all the news and information you need about the European tech scene in one place. Aside from adding non-intrusive advertising, we will also be making a number of tweaks and adding new features to our site on an ongoing basis to improve the reading experience.
We've got big plans for 2015 and we're already working on some exciting new stuff, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, we greatly value any feedback you would be willing to share.
