Media Entrepreneurship Boot Camp for Hispanic Journalists

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the midst of a digital and social media age that already has FOREVER altered the way people consume news and information, journalists from all spheres of traditional media – TV, radio, print (especially print) - are facing fears of lay offs, furlough and forcible part-time employment. 
In this special, half day boot camp for journalists loosely based on Manny Ruiz’s forthcoming book “A Journalist’s Guide to Media Entrepreneurship”, a parade of Latino media entrepreneurs will unpack practical insights, lessons and advice that will arm all journalists to tap into their inner entrepreneur.
In this session you will learn:
-The hardcore reality of what it takes to become a mediapreneur and how to test if you’re truly ready to take the leap
-Key lessons from failed media business models
-The different business models of media entrepreneurship
-Why savvy marketing is essential to success
-How to balance ethics and business to form a successful business model
