Axios Starts Subscription Newsletters Aimed at Dealmakers

From a story on by Sarah Scire headlined “Axios launches a premium subscription product aimed at the ‘dealmakers’ among us”:

The same week Axios celebrated its five-year anniversary, the news startup known for its rapid-fire editorial style has launched Axios Pro, a subscription service focused on deals in financial technology, health technology, and retail.

Axios has been hinting at plans to launch a premium subscription product since the very beginning. Back in 2016, Axios founder Jim VandeHei said he couldn’t imagine being “super intrigued with a subscription less than $10,000” for his new venture. The newly-debuted Axios Pro costs quite a bit less than that — $600/year for one newsletter or $1,800/year for all Pro newsletters — but it’s still not priced for the causal reader. (There’s a free two-week trial.)
