Who Is Protocol?
Our Mission

Technology is no longer just an industry; it’s a global power center with the sweep and impact of any nation’s capital. At Protocol, we cover it like one.

Protocol is a new media company from the publisher of POLITICO. We focus on the people, power and politics of tech, with no agenda and just one goal: to arm decision-makers in tech, business and public policy with the unbiased, fact-based news and analysis they need to navigate a world in rapid change.

Our Values
Protocol’s core values are more than just words; they are how we live and build our team and organization.
Fairness: We are committed to fair, unbiased and ethical journalism.
Integrity: We hold ourselves to the highest standards in all of our actions and choices.
Inclusion: We welcome and are an ally to diversity in all its forms, from race, gender, age, orientation and national origin to skills, beliefs, lifestyles and personal experiences.
Collaboration: We assume good intentions of our teammates and foster a climate of flexibility, creativity, urgency and humor.
Growth Mindset: We embrace ambition, disruption and sustainable business models to ensure our team’s professional trajectory.
Our Journalism

Protocol produces the unbiased, fact-based news and analysis that decision-makers in tech, business and public policy need to navigate a world in rapid change. Our work centers around:

  • The existential struggles between the disruptors and the disrupted;
  • The fight for power and influence within the tech industry;
  • The ongoing clash of tech giants and government regulators; and
  • The profound questions surrounding tech’s influence on people and the planet.
