The World’s First & Only South Asian Digital Daily

“The definitive smell of a start-up in the Silicon Valley was of curry.”
— Michael Lewis, The New, New Thing: A Silicon Valley Story
(Penguin Putnam)

That was the story about two decades ago, when we started our journey and continued to grow as the leading South Asian monthly. Today, as the speed of light seems diminishing with the advent of social media, the need for instant gratification has reached new levels. We all want to be in the know about things as they happen, not a week from when they have happened.

Siliconeer covers issues for the South Asian, and primarily, the Indian American community. Our curated stories are simple and accessible for broad appeal.

Be there for the audience – left, right, and center – that’s the new ‘mantra.’

Readership Demographics: The South Asian Community


South Asians are highly educated and affluent but at the same time, they are frugal and conscious about how they spend their wealth.

They are very well-connected to their roots even after years of living outside the homeland. An example is the love for Maggi that everyone still shares, and those endless nights of calls to friends and family back home, or the love for Bollywood, some things are etched in stone for us.

For any brand to make their space in any community they have to first embrace that community and keep them engaged.

South Asians included.

Siliconeer can help you reach the community effectively, economically, and repeatedly.
