I wanted to be sure you had heard: The theme of the next Knight News Challenge is mobile. With your background in social entrepreneurship and connection to the angel investment world, I thought you might be able to help us spread the word to the talented people we would like to see apply. That includes women and others who are under-represented in tech.
The application period for Knight News Challenge: Mobile is Aug. 29-Sept. 10. The window is short, but so is the application – under 500 words. Winners get substantial financial backing, and support from the Knight network. We're looking for innovative uses of mobile involving news and information; our ultimate goal is to see communities better informed and more engaged.
Knight Foundation is the nation's leading funder of journalism and media innovation. Other opportunities, including the Prototype Fund (small, fast, experimental) and the Enterprise Fund (for-profit companies) now provide us with a range of ways to fund innovation.
