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?”

You can meet the amazing Ms. Tareen and discover great insights on the successes, struggles and experiences of launching a good idea at We Media on March 9-11. Register here.
