What is Startups for News?
Startups for News is an international programme that rewards early-stage startups working on high-impact and daring solutions for the news industry. Every year, the Global Editors Network, in partnership with Journalism.co.uk, selects the best startups that address newsroom challenges through dynamic and innovative products or services.
The aim of Startups for News is to accelerate the development of promising, early-stage media startups through worldwide exposure, networking with senior media executives, and private mentorship from the Global Editors Network’s board members.
The Global Editors Network has already run five successful Startups for News seasons and just concluded the sixth season at the GEN Summit 2017 in Vienna.
Applications for the new edition of Startups for News close on 1 January 2018.
An international jury will select 16 startups, who will face off in online pitch battles. Afterwards, 8 finalists will be invited to the GEN Summit in Lisbon, where they will get to pitch in front of 800 editors-in-chief and media executives.
