Social Entrepreneurs | Journalism as a Cause – Alberto Ibarguen, Diana Wells, Keith Hammonds
As the economics of industrial journalism give way to the disruption and innovation of a digital, connected culture, new models of financing and practicing journalism are emerging. What lessons from social entrepreneurship are applicable here? If journalism makes the world better, should we think of it as a social cause rather than a commercial venture? Can journalism still produce financial results?
Keynote conversations with:
- Alberto Ibarguen, President, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation
- Diana Wells, President, Ashoka
Moderated by Keith Hammonds, Ashoka
