There’s been much industry debate in recent years about whether the future of journalism is nonprofit, for-profit or some combination of both. Join this session for a discussion between nonprofit and for-profit publishers around each model’s relative advantages and disadvantages and walk away with real world examples, new models and a comprehensive understanding of a variety of funding structures.

This session is designed for:

  • Mid- and late-career journalists seeking clarity and insights into for-profit and non-profit funding structures
  • Current and future founders, executives and publishers interested in gaining a solid understanding of their options
  • Everyone who has found themselves debating this very question
