Poynter Seeks Journalist Entrepreneurs

Are you a budding entrepreneur with a great online business idea related to journalism that you’d like to get off the launch pad? You may have an idea and strategy, even a domain, but you don’t know how to make it a long-term success. 

Pitch it to Poynter.

The Poynter Institute is a school for journalists, future journalists, and teachers of journalists. Poynter has 35 years of journalism training experience and a grant from the Ford Foundation. They are holding a competition for online startups and you could win the Poynter Promise Prize.

Your idea should advance the ideas of the The Poynter Institute — “standing for journalism, serving democracy.” Two winners will receive up to $10,000 each and spend two weeks at Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Fla., receiving guidance on their journalism and business idea.

How do you enter? You will need to create a three minute video by Tuesday, Oct. 12, that describes the news product or service you’re pitching and tells the basics of your business idea. E-mail pitch@poynter.org with a link to the video.

Poynter can help put you on the road to business and journalistic success. Be among the first to win the Poynter Promise Prize.  For more information, go to Poynter Online.
