Announcing the Sustainability Lab: Unblocking Revenue Barriers, from LION Publishers, in partnership with the Google News Initiative (GNI). This Lab will help independent news organizations bridge the gap between big-picture planning and daily execution. Participants will identify what’s standing in the way of meeting their revenue goals and articulate and test creative solutions for overcoming those blockers.
With the support of asynchronous training, one-on-one coaching, peer learning and up to $9,000 USD in funding, each of the 36 participants will develop a custom curriculum and tailored deliverables that will help clear the way for revenue growth and make progress toward sustainability.
The program recognizes that blockers or challenges will vary for each organization, which is why the focus is on three main tracks that have a proven impact on sustainability.
One: Understanding your finances to plan strategically
Two: Hiring, supporting, managing and/or retaining members of your team in a revenue role
Three: Growing or leveling-up an existing revenue stream
Applications are open until July 19.
