This important conversation will hear from three leaders who launched nonprofit newsrooms in recent years about the ins and outs (and ups and downs) of their experiences, walking through how to build out an idea using the Business Model Canvas, talking about why they chose this path and leaving audience members with the tools they need to jumpstart their own newsrooms.

This session is designed for:

  • Reporters, editors and product developers who want to start their own newsrooms
  • Newsroom leaders who want to better understand new nonprofit newsrooms
  • Anyone interested in learning more about the business-side of journalism
