Xconomy is a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based media company providing news on business, life sciences, and technology[1] focusing on the regions of Boston, Boulder/Denver, Detroit, New York City, Raleigh-Durham, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Texas, Wisconsin, and beyond.[1][2] 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.[3][4] Xconomy content covers "local personalities, companies, and technological trends to business and technology leaders" with a target audience of "entrepreneurs, business and technology executives and innovators, venture capitalists, angel investors, lawyers, and university researchers and officials."[1]


The original Xconomy site focused on the city of Boston, before opening another outlet in Seattle in 2008 and expanding to other regions afterwards.[5] Since its founding, Xconomy has also entered the field of business-to-business event production.[6]


Xconomy also provides "underwriting programs, banner ads, display ads, and ad networks".[1]
