Former Quartz co-founders Kevin Delaney and Jay Lauf have launched a new venture called Charter covering the future of work, reports Sara Fischer of Axios.

Fischer reports, “‘There are other media companies that write about this topic — some occasionally and some more frequently, but it’s one topic among many things that they do,’ Delaney said. ‘This is a driving focus for us.’

“Details: The company, which for now is self-funded, will have three main revenue streams: sponsorships, subscriptions and services, Delaney and Grau told Axios.

  • Until this point, Charter has been slowly launching products under the moniker ‘Reset Work,’ named after Delaney’s newsletter, which he started late last year. ‘Renaming the company reflects our bigger ambitions,’ Delaney said.
  • The free newsletter, which has 20,000 subscribers, tracks trends and provides analysis on workplace issues pegged to the pandemic and its recovery.
  • The team has already sold sponsorships around the newsletter over the past few months to companies like Goldman Sachs and Citrix.”
