WSJ to expand entrepreneurship coverage


The Wall Street Journal is launching two new digital offerings to cover entrepreneurship and startups: The Accelerators and Startup Journal, the newspaper announced.

Startup Journal’s page on will aggregate all of its coverage “on the world of startups, funding, founders and entrepreneurship,” according to its release.

As for The Accelerators, it is designed to be an “online forum,” bringing together relevant external contributions around a weekly topic. It will be overseen by the WSJ’s startups and small-business editor, Vanessa O’Connell, and will also host regular live chats.

“The disruption within the startup world has been closely followed by our readers, and we saw a significant opportunity to provide our audience with more robust coverage by launching Startup Journal and The Accelerators,” explains The Wall Street Journal Digital Network’s editor, Raju Narisetti, in a statement.
