Reputable national newspapers such as the Tribune Company and New York Times are in financial crisis, and many local newspapers have stopped publishing. How will journalism and the news business evolve with technology? What are the new opportunities for entrepreneurs? How can high-tech innovators build new business models around news and the barrage of newly unemployed journalists?
Join us and explore opportunities presented by the turmoil in the news industry and the business models being tried out by incumbents and new entrants. This event will bring together both old and new media companies, journalists and investors trying to reshape the news industry.
