  1. I was not aware about this concept. Thanks for sharing valuable links for reading. You have covered almost all topics. It will be referral guide for me during my Journalism Courses in India

    1. Good luck with your program. Entrepreneurial journalism should find fertile ground in India, with its growing middle class and established democracy. There is room for new voices.

  2. Thank you for the very useful roundup.

    Here at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston, home to the UK's oldest school of journalism, we've been involved since 2006 in driving intrapreneurship in the mainstream media through the Journalism Leaders Programme, amongst others (http://www.ukjournalism.org/jleaders). I've also been working to help new media startups stay up through the Media And Digital Enterprise (MADE) Project, which in 2011 became the only UK winner of the International Press Institute's News Innovation Contest sponsored by Google (http://uclanmade.blogspot.com ).

    Look forward to continuing the conversation with others who share the passion.

    1. Francois, continued good luck with your program. We are all involved in the same quest for new ways to produce high-quality journalism and pay people a living wage to do it.
