Update 3 May 2019: New Financial Times backed media group called Sifted (sifted.eu) is worthy of a mention. It covers startups and tech across Europe, from Stockholm to Sarajevo. But they’re not chasing after the latest funding announcements or product releases; plenty of other sites have got that covered.

They want to tell the untold (and we think, far more fascinating and useful) stories — big startup trends, compelling company profiles and the everyday lessons that come from growing a business and messing up along the way. Sign up to the newsletter here: bit.ly/2G60sKC
