About the Seminar
The Knight Digital Media Center in partnership with the Patterson Foundation hosted a three-and-a-half-day boot camp Oct. 1-4 in Chicago for experienced independent community news site founders and publishers who have demonstrated the ability to consistently provide vital local news content while engaging community and developing revenue streams.
Super Camp was designed to help those publishers refine best practices, grow revenue and significantly advance the sustainability of their sites. Session topics included business plan development, building organizational capacity, metrics for growth, revenue retention and small group workshops. Speakers were business experts who have experience building successful revenue programs at the local level.
The boot camp was by invitation only.
