ICFJ launches news business hub for media executives [Worldwide]

Posted on Feb 24, 2022 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 seven-month program will pair C-level executives from up to 20 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$25,000 each. The funding will be used for developing business solutions that can help participants’ organizations thrive.

The program begins May 2 and ends Nov. 30. 

The deadline is March 2.
