Raising Voices: Amra Tareen at We Media
Amra Tareen, the savvy and ebullient founder of AllVoices, has
just closed a $3 million funding round for the innovative, citizen journalism site. That brings funding to $9 million for the two-year-old start-up. Not bad. TechCrunch has a good take on the AllVoices funding.
How does she do it? Amra returns to We Media Miami this year
for Amra’s Great Adventure, a workshop on how a Harvard MBA, electrical engineer, and Muslim mother of two rose to partner at an investment fund to capture opportunities in communications, managed info-tech and telecom businesses, set up micro-credit programs for women and orphans of the Pakistan earthquake to rebuild their lives, and raised millions to start a global news company with local context provided by anyone. Is there funding to extend the AllVoices model into the future of news?”
