Welcome to Meridian. This is a publication on founders and the entrepreneurial spirit — we're telling stories on everything that people touch in the tech industry, whether those stories involve founders or investors, the teams that operate early-stage startups or the people using just-launched apps, full-timers or those who tap into their desire to build with pottery, newsletters, and other side hustles..

We approach our work with curiosity, accuracy, and interest. Meridian is meant to be a conversation starter and a spark of hope.

We hope you enjoy it.
