ACBJ paper begins startup newsletter

Startup Now

The Silicon Valley Business Journal, an American City Business Journals paper, has started a new newsletter called StartUp Now.

J. Jennings Moss, editor of the Upstart Business Journal, writes, “The Silicon Valley Business Journal is one of our sister publications, part of the network of 40 weeklies published by American City Business Journals (which is part of Advance Publishing). It’s led by publisher James MacGregor and editor-in-chief Greg Baumann.

“StartupNow, which is compiled by senior technology reporter Cromwell Schubarth, is just the latest sign of a newspaper being reborn. Until a few weeks ago, the paper was called the Silicon Valley-San Jose Business Journal. It dropped the San Jose part and adopted a more aggressive approach to covering the high-tech giants and upstart newcomers that drive the economy south of San Francisco.

There’s another reason I’m biased. I spent six years of my childhood in San Jose. My mother worked for Fairchild Semiconductor, a company now seen as the birthplace for so much of the region’s tech innovation. My brothers and their families still live a short drive away from the Silicon Valley Business Journal’s offices. I like the area. I love the paper. I’m glad the folks at the Silicon Valley Business Journal and I work for the same company.”
