    SAJA invites you to a panel discussion on Entrepreneurial Journalism

    One thing is for sure: journalism today is not what it used to be. It’s a new game in a brand new playing field and no one knows the rules. This actually gives journalists unprecedented opportunity to redefine the future of journalism. But where do we start? How do we do this? Who are our strategic partners? To answer this and to help journalists create the future of journalism today, SAJA is proud to present a workshop on “Entrepreneurial Journalism” with a panel of esteemed entrepreneur-journalists, coaches and venture capitalists. 

    Join us on April 8th 2015 at Grand Central Tech, as we help you envision a simple, step-by-step implementation guide that journalists (and student-journalists) with rich functional knowledge of the industry can use to conceptualize, improvise and develop your own journalism start-up project - not another website, but a radical and disruptive business idea! The workshop will provide journalists a primer on the business framework and essential tools required to shape your ideas into a minimum viable product (MVP), ready for venture capitalist funding.
