The Information, legally Lessin Media Company, is a subscription-based digital media company. The Information has tens of thousands of subscribers across 84 countries. The Information publishes daily articles and does not have any ads on its site. In 2016, the Columbia Journalism Review reported that 10 of the 11 most highly valued tech companies subscribe to The Information.


Jessica Lessin, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, quit her job in June 2013 to create a subscription-based news website marketed to technology-sector executives. The website, The Information, launched that December. The publication focuses on in-depth, data-driven analysis and exclusive investigative stories. Subscribers get access to events and a members-only Slack channel. Subscribers are given a personal page to encourage community involvement. Lessin later formed an advisory board which included venture capitalist John Doerr, Politico co-founder Jim VandeHei, and ProPublica executive chairman Paul Steiger. The company operates an Asia bureau headed by Shai Oster.

Vanity Fair included The Information on its 2014 New Establishment list.
