Since 2014, layoffs and shut-downs across cable TV, newspapers large and small, and even digital news darlings like VICE, BuzzFeed and HuffPost, have put nearly 10,000 people out of salaried news jobs. It’s clear that the business of news desperately needs re-invention, and the entrepreneurs on this panel are in the vanguard of figuring out how. Join us for this up-to-the-minute discussion on the ups and downs of starting up new news ventures (for- and non-profit), finding funding, generating revenues, managing the unexpected editorial challenges that new business models often create and more.
