Hi From Turner

I'm Turner Novak, founder of Banana Capital. Every week, I send an email to over 23,000 founders, investors, and everyone in between. The content is similar to what I tweet to 159,000 people on Twitter, just a little more serious.

🍌 What is The Split?

Every week I share light commentary or a deep dive on an interesting startup or tech story I’m following.

Topics are along the lines of “interesting things that not enough people are talking about yet”. I also throw in:

  • 🚀 Product Launches: New things that caught my eye, from startups tp big tech.

  • 🔗 News and Charts: Commentary on the best I've come across since I sent the last email.

  • 💌 ICYMI: Quick headline blast in case you missed them.

  • 📚 Long Reads: Things to read over the weekend.

  • 🐵 Monkey business: Memes that capture the current zeitgeist.

  • 👀 And more: I'm still experimenting with this, but there are some other fun initiatives in the pipeline.
