So why has Riddle decided to become a Pando patron? We are still a new start up quiz maker company – yet we have a number of very high profile clients. We also have LOTS of small clients: bloggers, self-published writers, teachers, fan club moderators, niche magazines – the list is endless.
We all love the big tech companies that are bringing us innovative products – some of which we use every day – but this doesn’t mean that big companies should be able behave differently to the rest of us.
This is why we jumped at the chance to become a Pando Patron.
Pando is an online publication with a reputation of hard-hitting news stories in technology, start up companies and the Silicon Valley. A few months ago they switched to an advert-supported model to one primarily supported by subscribers.
This confirms their status as being truly independent.
But what about people who may not have the funds to spend on a subscription?
This is where Pando Patrons come in. Patrons buy an annual membership while also supporting a number of free subscriptions for other people.
“Between the upcoming unicorn collapse and tech $ in the election and SEC opening crowdfunding, we need independent tech journalism more than ever.”
Pando founder Sarah Lacy
