Maven Investor Newsletter 10/30

A weekly compendium of news from in and around the company for investors, partners and other stakeholders.

Platform Update: Last week we rolled out the first step in a design change to better distinguish publisher/editor stories and posts from those of their users, to present stories containing third party links more effectively and to provide a more efficient layout overall. The remaining step will arrive in a few weeks; we call it the “split stream,” where stories and quickposts will appear in their own areas of the front page and rooms.

Maven of the Week: MishTalk, one of the nation’s top financial blogs, covers global economic trends. MishTalk founder and publisher Mike “Mish” Shedlock is one of dozens of award-winning journalists, best-selling authors, top analysts, important causes and foundations who are joining Maven’s coalition of elite content channels. Our growing finance & economics category also includes Brad Thomas, Bob Brooks, Sean Hyman, Neale Godfrey, Paul Krake, Peter Tchir and Clayton Morris.

Maven 1.0 Platform Launch: With 25 channel partners now live with millions of viewers among them, and 50 more at various stages of integration, Maven is on the road to a long-term goal of 1,000 professional channels and communities across 25 content verticals.

Partners are seeing considerable consumer engagement uplift after transition to the platform - a 71% increase on average. For more information and charts, see last week’s public announcement.

Welcome Aboard! A warm welcome to our newest signed Mavens: Leyla Hussein/Face of Defiance, covering reproductive health and gender-based violence; Sustainable Human, encouraging new ways of thinking about sustainability; and fixed-income expert Peter Tchir. And, as of today, the Transgender Universe channel is now live on Maven.

Thank you for your interest in Maven.
