We Need Great Ideas, You Need Funding

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

The McCormick Tribune Foundation is looking for some creative women digital media entrepreneurs for a new project - and you, or your associates, may be just the one with the golden idea that gets funded.

In the words of our grantee J-Lab, "Calling all creative new media women. J-Lab: The Institute for Interactive Journalism is seeking to fund three women-led start-ups that will generate new ideas in the world of news and information and model a spirit of journalistic entrepreneurship." So what's the deal? J-Lab is seeking three great new digital media projects founded by women to receive $10,000 seed grants to launch their ideas and blog about it for the next year. These grants are part of a new initiative that will "address issues of opportunity and innovation, recruitment and retention for women in journalism."

The deadline to apply is May 1. For application materials, and to learn more about the McCormick Tribune New Media Entrepreneurs initiative, visit the project's Web site at http://www.newmediawomen.org/.
