Starting a company is easier said than done. From product development to funding, the journey of the startup entrepreneur is filled with potential distractions and roadblocks. Our panelists have built, sold and invested in companies in the news and media space, started organizations and innovative projects that have changed investigative & data journalism and digital video altogether, invested in media startups, and yes, made a lot of mistakes. Come hear what they've learned and how that may apply to your project; if you wish, come prepared with a short pitch so that panelists ca provide feedback if time allows. The twist? Your idea is important. But what matters most is timing and execution.
