The Plug, which covers Black and brown technology companies and is led by Sherrell Dorsey, has stopped providing content after seven years.
Dorsey writes, “I just knew that Black founders, investors, and ecosystem leaders deserved better reporting, data insights that documented our stories, and platforms that built communities and not just content full of click-bait and open letters.
“When I look over the body of work we created, I am damn proud of what me and my team were able to accomplish with your support.
“The wins that mattered:
- The Plug became the first Black business publication to syndicate on The Bloomberg Terminal in 2021.
- Our work featured in The Washington Post, LA Times, ADWeek, The Information, Bloomberg, and others.
- Our data has helped founders raise hundreds of thousands of dollars, accelerators launch in new markets, and bring visibility to ecosystem leaders who largely remain overlooked.
- We didn’t raise capital until year 6, sustaining largely from revenue, partnerships, and grants.”
