How can media startups break through, survive and thrive? That will be the focus of the upcoming Collab/Space Atlanta workshop on October 16, 2013, the day before the ONA13 conference. It will be an all-day, hands-on workshop focused on media innovation and spotlighting 9 cutting-edge media startups -- both in Atlanta and outside Atlanta. We've chosen 9 innovative media startups, which will present their startups in lightning fashion, with questions from the audience. We'll later do collaborative exercises to learn how to work better together in the digital age, and then break out into groups to help the startups get past their challenges. But we'll also be learning how to take those solutions back to our own workplaces. Plus, we'll be collaborating with a diverse group of participants, including entrepreneurs, journalists, technologists, designers, marketers, investors and major players in the tech and media scene.
The nine presenting startups are:
Carolina Public Press
Clear Health Costs
San Francisco Public Press
Social News Desk
Voices on the Record
The workshop will take place from 9 am to 5 pm at the Atlanta Tech Village in Atlanta, Ga., followed at the same place with a networking mixer from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
