Xconomy uniquely targets the local innovation community—an elite audience of entrepreneurs, business and technology executives and innovators, venture capitalists, angel investors, lawyers, and university researchers and officials.

Our underwriting program provides unprecedented access to the local innovation community through run-of-site placement, branding on our e-mail newsletters, and face-to-face meetings at our invitation-only events.

In addition, becoming an underwriter offers powerful intangible benefits. These include,

  • Establishing your company as a thought leader and trend-setter in a community of business and technology pioneers.
  • Participating in and helping strengthen the local innovation ecosystem.
  • Opening new channels to clients, customers, and ideas.
  • Gaining fresh avenues of access to potential recruits.


For those interested in reaching this same high-quality audience on a more limited basis—perhaps to publicize a specific product, event, or service—we offer a number of options for purchasing banner ads, IMUs, and other forms of placement on the site.
