The Core Is Expanding, Merging With The Signal

Dear readers,

The Core was set up last year with a distinct focus on India’s traditional economy as well as mature businesses, including the listed universe. The Core has already built a loyal following among readers who track sectors such as energy, semiconductors, infrastructure, logistics, aviation, healthcare, and electric vehicles. 

Some of India’s biggest investment outlays and bets right now and in coming years will be around manufacturing, ranging from high-value semiconductors to mobile phones and generic drugs to, of course, automobiles. And we are already seeing massive investments in infrastructure and logistics. 

We now have some exciting news to share with you. The Core is expanding. 

We are merging with The Signal, a business newsletter and website that reaches more than 100,000 subscribers along with sister brands The Playbook and The Impression.

The new integrated team will be led by Delhi-based senior journalist and author Dinesh Narayanan. The Signal was co-founded by Dinesh, Rajneil Kamath, and Venkat Ananth, who will now take over as Head of Podcasts & Special Projects. 

Dinesh will now take over as Managing Editor of the combined entity, which will continue to work on deeply researched original stories that showcase the most important trends in the worlds of business and finance. 

And you will continue to be alerted by them with additional insights via our daily The Core and now, The Signal newsletters!

The Signal also produces the successful morning podcast, The Signal Daily, which has now crossed 360,000 downloads and is an Editor’s Pick on Apple’s Top 20 news podcasts. Thank you for your love that made it possible and keep listening. 


Govindraj Ethiraj

Founder, The Core
