HQ started in a newsroom

In 2016, a half-dozen corporations separately called Axios' founders with a surprising question: Can you help us communicate with the clarity and efficiency of your newsletter writers?

  • At first, we dismissed it.

  • But as a half dozen calls grew to 20 or more, we started to explore why so many leaders struggle to communicate effectively.

Our findings: Even the most sophisticated organizations get clogged by the minute-to-minute churn of ineffective communication. They need vital updates, synthesized into what’s new and what matters.


Our AI-powered writing tips made it a smash

We took the lessons — and data — of Axios' best writers and built a powerful software that helps you plan, write, send, and track essential updates that break through to busy readers.

  • We made it a joy to use by obsessing about simplicity.

  • We made it useful to organizations large and small by using cutting-edge technology that can elevate any message they need to share.

450+ organizations trust HQ —
from startups to the Fortune 500

Axios HQ helps them send everything from all-staff updates, to department-level news, to customer communications and more.
