ICFJ launches news business hub for media executives [Worldwide]

Posted on Mar 1, 2023 in Media Sustainability

Journalists who run small- or medium-sized independent news outlets around the world can apply.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is accepting applications for Elevate, a news business hub focused on helping C-level journalists develop their business skills.

The nine-month program will pair C-level executives from 10 out of 30 participating news outlets with mentors from the global business community to identify and tackle a critical business problem.

The coaching will fall in one of four areas: business strategy, operations and finance, technology and new media, and communications and marketing.

Four to five of the participating news outlets will receive grant funding of up to US$10,000 each. The funding will be used for developing business solutions that can help participants’ organizations thrive.

The program begins in March and ends in December.
