3 min readApr 6, 2022

We believe it was Nelson Mandela who said “Remember to celebrate milestones as you prepare for the road ahead.”

Today, Newzera with the deepest pride and greatest pleasure is all set to act on Mr. Mandela’s words and celebrate a milestone that it has achieved on its journey to reaching the stars!

We are ecstatic to announce that Newzera has been ranked among the best startups by AngelList. Not just in India, but globally!

We have also been ranked the number one startup on the AngelList talent platform, globally, for inbound jobs interest for the month of March 2022.

“We’re excited to invest in Newzera. We believe that exceptional people build exceptional companies, and we know from our hiring data that the company ranks among the best startups — -not just in India but globally — -in attracting top talent. In March, Newzera’s posted jobs had the most inbound applicants among the 30,000+ startups hiring on AngelList Talent.”

And the good news doesn’t just stop here!

We are honoured to share that AngelList has also approached Newzera to be a part of AngelList’s quant fund, an initiative by the angel investment platform to scout the best startups early on.

AngelList which is a US-based platform for startups, angel investors, and job-seekers works on everything from fund operations to founder cap table management.

The platform has recently launched the AngelList Early Stage Quant Fund which is a data-based algorithmic fund that helps the platform find the best startups based on the hiring data. The team at AngelList also looks at indicators like the background of applicants and the number of applicants while making the assessment.

As we take this opportunity to congratulate AngelList for launching a unique way of finding the best startups based on the hiring data, we’re also proud to say that Newzera in the last two years has conducted exceptional placement drives pan India, interviewed around 20,000 candidates, and hired approximately 350+ out of those.

With a vision to create a modern social network for Gen Z where news is produced in a new format using deep learning, Newzera has always cultivated the brightest talents from across the top institutes of India but not limited to IIMs, IITs, IIITs, NITs, NIDs, IIMC and DU.

Newzera’s hiring interviews are designed to be one of the toughest and most extensive interview loops in the world. And we take great pride in maintaining a high hiring bar and low acceptance rate.

And ironically so does AngelList.

AngelList talent sees about 35,000 companies from across the world in a quarter get active interest but it is only 100 best startups out of those that get included in the platform’s Early Stage Quant Fund and Newzera is more than elated to be a part of that list!

Grateful. Thrilled. Proud.

All of these words fall short when it comes to describing how Newzera’s team feels after receiving the honour!

Shrey Sharma, Founder and CEO of Newzera sums it up pretty well

“Hiring is one of the major challenges faced by any startup. We are very fortunate that a lot of exceptional talent around the world is super interested in working with us. For an early-stage startup to achieve this feat is incredible and is an important signal for the success of the product. Kudos to AngelList for the initiative. Excited to be part of their Early-Stage Quant Fund.”




Newzera, is a love child of unflinching belief and vision of a better tomorrow. We’re here to create a world-class platform based on robo-journalism.
