Xconomy is a business news website with news sites focusing on the regions of Boston, Boulder/Denver, Detroit, New York City, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and Texas.[1] The website was founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in June 2007 by Robert Buderi, former Editor-in-Chief of MIT's Technology Review, and co-founded by Rebecca Zacks, the former managing editor of the New England Journal of Medicine's daily e-newsletter Physician’s First Watch.[2][3] The original Xconomy site focused on the city of Boston, before opening another outlet in Seattle in 2008 and expanding to other regions afterwards.[4] Since its founding, Xconomy has also entered the field of business-to-business event production.[5]
