Full-time and freelance journalists can apply for this program.

The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) organizes Catalyst, a bootcamp on how to fund and launch media products. The program will take place Nov. 9 to 11 in New York. 

Participants will learn how to transform ideas into products; develop strategies for finding product-market fit; legally incorporate an organization, pitch angel investors and venture capitalists; apply to incubators and accelerator programs; and navigate the foundation grantmaking process.

There is a US$400 program fee for AAJA members and US$600 for non-AAJA members, which includes workshops, meals and one-on-one mentoring sessions.

AAJA will provide US$500 travel stipends to a limited number of recipients.

The deadline is Oct. 6.
