Tracing the History of Nikkei in English

In 1946, Nihon Sangyo Keizai changed its name to Nihon Keizai Shimbun. The following year, the paper promised to “contribute to the peaceful and democratic development of the Japanese economy, the basis of people’s livelihoods, by providing fair and impartial news.”

Nikkei will publish a series of articles in English on its website about its 145-year history. Be sure to follow this fascinating story as it unfolds.

TOKYO, JAPAN, October 1, 2021 / — Nikkei Inc. will publish a series of articles in English on its website ( ) about the history of the company. It is a story that starts with the first issue of the Chugai Bukka Shimpo in 1876 and includes a change of name to the Nihon Keizai Shimbun (the Nikkei) after World War II, the beginning of the Nikkei Stock Average, and an alliance with the Financial Times. It is our hope that these articles will provide an opportunity for overseas businesspeople to gain more knowledge about Nikkei.

Nikkei celebrates its 145th anniversary in December this year. (The predecessor of the Nikkei, the Chugai Bukka Shimpo, was first published on December 2, 1876.) Nikkei will continue to make further progress as it works to fulfill its mission of “contributing to the development of a free and healthy market economy and democracy.”

“Our History” is a series of articles that unfolds the story of Nikkei. Until now, it has been available only on the Japanese website, but it has been translated into English, and has been re-edited and made public. The first installment is about Nikkei’s alliance with the FT. This event marked the beginning of Nikkei’s widespread recognition in English-speaking countries as a media voice.

Eiichi Shibusawa, a pioneering leader of the Japanese economy, also appears in the story as a name from the Meiji era, when Nikkei’s predecessor the Chugai Bukka Shimpo was launched. In the discussion of the days from World War II to the post-war period, you can sense the spirit of the managers and editors of the time. They attempted to observe the world from an economic perspective and convey their findings in a “fair and impartial” manner, without depending on any particular ideology or position and without being beholden to any authority.

Our History 1: Nikkei Acquires Financial Times (FT)
Our History 2: The Roots of the Nikkei – the Chugai Bukka Shimpo
Our History 3: The Birth of the Nikkei

The three stories to be published first are, so to speak, an introduction. In the second part of the series, we will reveal the story of the beginnings of the Nikkei Stock Average, which has been marking the movements of the Japanese economy for many years. You will also learn about the advent of the digital subscriptions that were among the first such media innovations in Japan and Asia. Be sure to follow this fascinating series as it unfolds.

“Our History” will be posted on Nikkei Inc.’s “Global Services” corporate website, and it will be updated as needed. The site not only provides content that touches on Nikkei’s journalism as a news organization, but it also makes available information on the various commercial services that the Nikkei Group provides to its readers and customers overseas.

Gupshup acquires Dotgo

Acquisition propels Gupshup into global leadership in RCS solidifying its IP-based conversational messaging platform and accelerating growth in Africa

With the addition of RCS, Gupshup will undoubtedly be the strongest IP messaging company, and thus helps us accelerate our mission”

— Dr. Inderpal Singh Mumick, co-founder and CEO of Dotgo

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, September 23, 2021 / — Gupshup, the leader in conversational messaging, today announced that it has acquired New Jersey based Dotgo. Dotgo is the global industry leader in RCS business messaging (RBM), with award-winning technologies such as the RichOTP®, RichSMS™, Bot Store®, and Dotgo MaaP (Messaging as a Platform) that foster the growth of RCS Business Messaging. A strong partner of Google, Mavenir, Synchronoss, Vodafone, and Orange, Dotgo manages RBM in several markets, and operates the world’s largest RBM Hub with global connectivity to RCS users across the world. Dotgo is uniquely positioned to help brands integrate, with simple APIs, the RCS channel into their customer communications, whether for sales, support, services, or other business processes.

Dotgo, powered by a founding team with a rich history of tech innovation, is a Cohort 6 graduate of the IIT Startups accelerator. Dotgo grew rapidly in 2021 as RCS gained traction in North America, Europe, India, Brazil, and Nigeria. Dotgo’s MaaP, offered in partnership with, and pre-integrated with, Google Jibe platform, has been selected to operate RCS business messaging at several mobile network operators. Dotgo has been a leading contributor at the Mobile Ecosystem Forum and GSMA in defining standards and processes for RCS Business Messaging.

Dotgo will significantly strengthen Gupshup’s conversational messaging platform that enables businesses and developers to build rich customer experiences. Gupshup also plans to leverage Dotgo’s strong experience and presence in Africa to expand there.

“Conversational experiences are becoming the key to business-customer interactions, and the RCS messaging channel is a critical enabler,” said Beerud Sheth, co-founder and CEO, Gupshup. “Dotgo’s product innovation, market traction and thought leadership in the RCS ecosystem is truly impressive. Together, we’ll be able to offer a broader range of conversational messaging solutions to businesses and developers. We are excited to welcome them to the Gupshup family.”

Dr. Inderpal Singh Mumick, co-founder and CEO of Dotgo said “RCS business messaging is destined to change the way businesses communicate with their customers. We started Dotgo to create APIs that make it easy for brands and other players in the ecosystem to adopt RCS, while taking care of and hiding all the backend complexity from our customers. With the addition of RCS, Gupshup will undoubtedly be the strongest IP messaging company, and thus helps us accelerate our mission.”

Johanna Kollar, Partnerships Lead, Communication Products, Google said “We congratulate Dotgo and Gupshup on this acquisition. We have worked closely with Dotgo and are very impressed by the quality of their products and services. We look forward to growing our relationship as the Dotgo team becomes a part of Gupshup.”

“The Dotgo team members were visionaries in recognizing the potential of RCS at a time when it had little adoption. We congratulate them on building industry leading products that are being adopted by customers across the world, just as RCS is taking off. Their bet proved prescient and combining with an exceptional company like Gupshup will create a far stronger value proposition in the market”, said Naren Gupta, Managing Director, Nexus Venture Partners.

RCS will be a key messaging channel in Gupshup’s Conversational Messaging Platform, supplementing 30 other messaging channels available to customers via Gupshup’s Single API for messaging. RCS, a part of the 5G standard, is the next generation of SMS that includes pictures, audio, video, and presence, combined with enhanced security and encryption.
