News Selected by Google News Startup Lab


By Tara Hughes


Oct 21.  Winchester News has been selected by the Google News Initiative’s (GNI) Pre-launch Lab which supports journalism start-ups. GNI received applications from 175 startup news groups, which they narrowed down to 30 before holding interviews. After the interviews were conducted, they chose their final 25 applicants to be invited to take part in the 8-week program.

The program supports early-stage entrepreneurs in journalism with a free, fully-remote program whose mission is to help entrepreneurs prepare to launch or continue to develop a successful, trusted digital news organization. It provides guidance and coaching, and a focused and practical curriculum grounded in hands-on learning and getting things done, so the organization can become independent and stay independent. This is done through weekly live video seminars with a small cohort as well as weekly one-on-one coaching during the Pre-launch Lab to help move the idea forward. Organizations are also provided with quarterly coaching for a year after the Lab. The program is set to begin next week.
