Every spring semester, the Advanced Certificate in Entrepreneurial Journalism program gives a group of fellows — outstanding mid-career journalists, recent journalism school graduates, and other promising applicants — a chance to focus on innovative approaches to journalism and develop startup projects in close consultation with faculty advisers and mentors. The 15-week program is offered through the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
This year’s 15 fellows have proposed a variety of exciting initiatives, including hyperlocal sites in Brooklyn and Newark, niche sports sites, and an LGBTQ news portal. Other projects include a platform connecting writers and publishers and a plan for internal innovation at a leading Japanese newspaper. The 2014 group includes rising stars from Argentina, Brazil, England, India, Japan, Germany and beyond.
