Hi, I'm Benjamin Mateev and I am an entrepreneuer
I am the CEO and co-founder of informed. informed curates world-class journalism from premium publishers, all available under one subscription. Our experts and editors read hundreds of articles every day, selecting and suggesting only the best.
Over the last 15 years, I studied Computer Science. I added some economics, philosophy and psychology into the mix. Since then I worked in various startups. I founded a rapid-prototyping agency in Berlin. I was a lead engineer at Wunderlist. A Berlin-born, design-lead to-do list application that Microsoft acquired in 2015. In my last position at Microsoft, I was a Product Lead for digital memory and to-do experiences. Together with the team, we created and executed a company-wide tasks strategy.
After a small sabbatical, I decided to start my second company informed. With informed we want to create a better way to consume news and to help people feel better informed. Since October 2020 we are building a multi-platform solution together with world-class partners like the New York Times, Economist, Financial Times, Washington Post, Bloomberg and others.
Learning from people is at the core of everything I do and achieving our highest potential. To do that, we have to develop a high level of empathy and candour. Meeting and interacting with new people from different cultures is one way to learn. I have joined global networks such as Startingbloc, the Reality Experience, JDC, Sandbox and others. In addition, I mentor projects and teams through MIT Solve, Techstars and the Berlin Founders Fund.
