AJP’s Local News Incubator Information Session

The American Journalism Project, with support from the Google News Initiative, is launching a local news incubator. The program is intended to support entrepreneurs who want to explore launching a new nonprofit local news organization to serve their communities. 

Individuals and small teams with ideas for new local news organizations can apply for this 18-month incubator, which will provide both startup capital and expert counsel. For this cohort, AJP will select up to four individuals or pairs. Founders will receive $400,000 to pursue their startup full time and receive support for researching, developing an editorial strategy to fill the local news and information needs they identify in a given market, fundraising, coalition-building and preparing to launch an organization.

Those interested in applying are encouraged to attend the upcoming information session on January 12 at 8 a.m. MT.
