Founders Fellowship Workshop

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us on November 2nd and 3rd at 7 PM (Eastern Time) for our two-day Founders Fellowship Workshop. Attendees will learn best practices for market research, venture platforming, and revenue development in the journalism industry.

RSVP Below


  • During Day 1, MVJ President Russell Midori will interview John Patrick Pullen, the founding editor of Long Lead. The story studio he founded focuses on finding, funding and producing original, in-depth journalism, and the discussion will focus on the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship.
  • We’ll then discuss how to apply design thinking to your ideas for a news venture, and provide you with a method for prototyping your concept.
  • On Day 2, some of us will share our prototypes and receive feedback from others in the Founders Fellowship Program. Some of our most innovative members will be present for this workshop, so come ready to bring your ideas and ask questions of others.

Guest Speaker:

John Patrick Pullen has worked as both a freelance journalist and a staff editor at TIME and Fortune over two decades, gaining expertise in both sides of the trade. As Long Lead’s founding editor, he’s using that experience to build a new model for journalism — one that puts independent contributors first.

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain actionable strategies and thrive in journalism. RSVP above and we’ll see you there.
