Sharp insights into the world of modern business for £45.00 per year.

This is our first issue focused on female founders. We profile the most exciting female-led businesses, jump on board with the travel startups gearing up for take-off, and check out Istanbul’s startup scene.

Courier brings female founders to the forefront in our latest issue. We look at how women, like our cover star Sharmadean Reid, are building founders networks to remedy years of bro-culture in the startup world. We also list the talks, spaces, and finance initiatives every female founder should know about.

The death of the high street travel agent has left a gap in the market for fresh thinking in the sector. We catch up with the founders of LuckyTrip in Hackney and profile the other companies hoping to shake up the sector. 

Istanbul has been a volatile place in the last few years. Once it was on course to be Europe’s most exciting new business hub, yet in recent times it has had to contend with violence on the streets and the fallout from a failed coup. We meet some of the founders rebuilding the city’s business credentials and drawing the eye of international investors.

On top of all of that, Courier meets a pig farming book publisher. What’s not to love?
