About Us

DON Investment News™ is a Seychelles-headquartered, subscription-driven media company, covering all deals – private equity, venture capital M&As, listings and the business of startups across the globe. 


We provide deals data, intelligence, and perspective on some of the world’s most opaque markets to international and regional investors. We also track startups that are disrupting the status quo and playing an important role in the evolution of one of the fastest-growing regions of the world. As one of the Seychelle’s first subscription-based digital media company's, our USP is producing journalism worth paying for – we are NOT a content play.


The response to the introduction of the paywall has surpassed our expectations – it validates our readers’ support for our journalism, and it is fuel for us to double down on building a world-class organization.


Our coverage is powered by growing our strong team of nearly two dozen writers and researchers, who live and work in key markets across the UK, Europe, Asia, North America, Monaco, South America, Africa, and Australasia.

Over the last six years, we have differentiated ourselves in an aggregation-dominated market, with the depth and width of our stories, and provided deal engineers across the industry a competitive edge. 


The site also addresses the imbalance in coverage of companies from this demographically diverse and challenging region which has frequently been underserved by the media – both international and regional. 


Our breaking stories have been followed by all leading media including Bloomberg, Reuters, TechCrunch, and Business Times, among others. 


Through its coverage, analytics, and events, DON Investment News' aim is to chronicle global firms as they negotiate a new Golden Age of investing.  We will be launching a series of new products through 2020 including data, research, and long-form articles. Stay tuned for these announcements...
