This morning’s workshop is for start-ups, nonprofits, and new media on the business practices and revenue models underlying successful investigative journalism enterprises. What are the keys to a successful investigative journalism organisation or start up? How can such organisations diversify revenue, especially in more difficult areas of the world? What innovative practices will provide a strong base and financial structure to do important investigative journalism? Three global experts and five investigative journalism organisations from across Asia will join forces to share best practices and ideas.

Part One will focus on three essential sources of revenue: fundraising, audience engagement & revenue, and commercial income.
