Becoming an Entrepreneurial Journalist: From Idea to Implementation

So, you have an idea for a new journalism start-up. You’re thinking about making the plunge, but you’re not sure whether the entrepreneurial life is for you. Or maybe you’ve decided to launch a venture, and you’re looking guidance in the crucial weeks and months at the beginning of your project.

This course aims to give participants the knowledge and tools needed to launch content-driven news/information websites. We’ll take you from idea to implementation and, when necessary, help you retool or replace ideas with better versions.

If you’re considering starting a news or information-oriented website, this course will help you decide whether an entrepreneurial path is the right one for you. And if you’re looking for a crash course on starting a business, it will show you the ropes, point you to the right resources and help you formulate the questions you most need answers to.” Source: Poynter’s News University
