I’m Liza Osetinskaya, founder of The Bell.
The Bell is a media startup, born while I was a fellow at Stanford in 2016-2017. At the time, my former teammates and I were trying to figure out what a successful media business in Russian looks like nowadays. Despite the current troubles in our industry, especially in Russia, we believe we've found a solution. We want to follow a model developed by rapidly-growing media startups in the U.S. such as Axios, The Information, Finimize and The Skimm.
Our goal is to help business people save time by delivering only the most essential information to them. We've started with a daily email newsletter. In a quick five-minute read, we deliver all of the info that a successful professional needs to follow the most important trends. We deliver our newsletter twice a day: 10 AM and 8:30 PM (Moscow time).
