Research Paper


This paper attempts to illustrate how entrepreneurial journalism is and has been shaping media. In doing so, I will first give a brief overview of how journalism has been disrupted. In chapter two, I will show how journalism schools teach future journalists to be mediapreneurs. Next, I will focus on what it takes to build a media startup by giving examples of journalistic ventures. The chapter on fundraising focuses on ways how journopreneurs can obtain seed money for their startup. Next, this paper points out why students should adopt an entrepreneurial mindset; finally, it provides a list of successful media companies. This treatise does not claim to be comprehensive or 100 percent accurate. Entrepreneurial journalism is an ever-evolving, opaque new aspect of our profession that changes constantly.
