Indie Voices: Connecting Investors With Journalism Entrepreneurs in Developing Countries

Categories: Citizen Media, Economics & Business, Media & Journalism

In the Knight Center's Journalism in the Americas Blog, Alejandro Martinez writes [1] about a new crowdfunding platform for independent journalism projects called Indie Voices [2]: [1]

Indie Voices seeks to become a meeting ground between entrepreneuring journalists and investors, where the former can find different sources of funding and put together their own financial strategy, and the latter — whether a single donor with $20 or a foundation with $10,000 — can choose different ways to channel their money.


Indie Voices is currently looking for more media projects to help fund through its platform, whether they are large news sites, individual blogs, documentaries or journalism-related technologies. It’s focusing on innovative projects that will help enrich the media ecosystem in developing countries.
