In Search of Brevity

The world used to be simpler. The amount of information that is available (or not) is simply overwhelming.

Whether you are too busy or can't find freely available and suitable sources, getting the correct data to make intelligent business decisions is hard. At Shoto, it is our goal to unlock this data for you and to enable you to run and build successful businesses! We made it our mission to deliver to you what's trending in the business and tech world in the most concise way possible.

Shoto was founded by Babak, out of my frustrations in reading and digesting news.

I saw that the current media landscape is overcrowded with unmeaningful information. Given my background in consulting & product management, I love to dig into large amounts of data to find the golden nuggets of information that can make a difference.
