About us

Stories of emerging technology at the intersection of business, economy, and politics.

From Asia, to the world.

Technology is by its very nature, disruptive. But understanding it also helps us navigate this age of disruption better.

Forkast was started in 2018 with a simple premise: Technology should be understood by the people it will impact most. At Forkast, we believe that the story of technology will shape the dynamics of a global economy in the near future. And in fact, it already has.

Forkast has been at the forefront of this dynamic since day one. We grew out of a recognition that technology must be covered beyond cryptocurrency price moves and understanding code or engineering –– it should be covered in context, and by its impact.

Forkast brings you stories and analysis on emerging technology at the intersection of business, economy, and politics. Our mission is to help you understand Asia’s role in this global story of technology innovation.
