MUMBAI: Network 18 has appointed Pankaj Mishra as the group editor for coverage of the new economy, technology and startups.

Mishra will work across platforms, breaking big exclusives with his team on television and Moneycontrol. He will bring a startup investing dimension to Moneycontrol Pro and create world-class editorial events which will be hosted across platforms.

Mishra is being joined in this new mission by Sunny Sen, a prolific writer of agenda-setting stories, and Anand Murali, whose understanding of startups is second to none. Sunny and Anand were fellow adventurers with Mishra at FactorDaily.

Mishra joined Network 18 from FactorDaily, a new-age media startup he founded over three years ago.

At FactorDaily, Mishra and his team became known for agenda-setting and deep technology and startup stories. Mishra brings all his entrepreneurial learning and inputs from inside India's startup ecosystem to help create impact for Network 18.   

Earlier, in his assignments at The Economic Times and Mint, Mishra built and led technology and startup teams. He was also the India editor for TechCrunch. Mishra believes in combining unique stories and content with design, technology, community engagement and distribution for building valuable media products.  He loves traveling, mostly by train, and meeting people. Over past two years, Mishra has also been producing a weekly podcast called Outliers. He recorded the 100th episode last month with AR Rahman.
