Solving for News: Real World Lessons From News Startups

Ever envision a tool that would make a story you were reporting or a workflow you were trapped in *so* much better? Ever daydream about flipping your desk, walking out of the newsroom and getting to call that person in the mirror “boss?” We’ll hear from an excellent crop of diverse news entrepreneurs on the problems they’re aiming to solve. After a series of brief presentations, you'll have the opportunity to ask questions and get feedback on your own ideas, as well as insights into the start-up life.
