Hear from media entrepreneurs of color and funders on why we aren’t seeing more media startups in under-served communities. Expect a lively chat with insights into how local media entrepreneurship — especially those led by people of color — presents the opportunity to fill gaps filled by cuts in legacy outlet budgets, or where communities were never well-served in the first place.

This session is designed for:

  • Funders who want to create a more inclusive startup environment
  • Media entrepreneurs, especially those who want to focus on underserved communities, interested in learning more about funding mechanisms
  • Those passionate about local news ecosystems and how they can be more representative
