Today we look to the future – mapping the landscape for journalism and media. What are the new models to sustain this craft we love? What’s the role for non-profits? And let’s not forget profits!How can we embrace social media, mobile, video, data and user generated content to better tell and share stories? What can journalism learn from other disciplines and from the startup world, to work smarter and sustain our industry for the long run?
We’ll explore and demystify funding sources – what the hell is venture capital anyway? We’ll dive into practical sessions – learn the legal basics of startups, how to talk code with developers, and how to pitch your big idea to the people that can fund it. Hear from people who’ve tried starting up a new media project – and why you shouldn’t be scared to have a crack.
From the crowd to the cloud – we bring you the freshest thinking on journalism innovation and entrepreneurship.
