The Juggernaut Editorial Team

The Juggernaut is a publication for smart, sharp South Asian stories and news for the world’s largest diaspora. We are chronicling the rise of South Asians, and challenging the norms that hold us back. We tell stories you can’t find anywhere else and add deep context to those you might have heard already. We’re also diversifying newsrooms and storytelling — 77% of newsrooms in the United States were white in 2018, yet Asia is poised to create over 50% of world GDP by 2020. We have an avid community of members and also host regular events in New York. We’ve been featured in Y Combinator’s Hacker News, TechCrunch, Axios, and Harvard Business School’s MBA Voices Blog.
