What innovative practices will provide a strong base and financial structure to do the journalism you want to do? Doing great journalism isn't enough -- your group's success will also depend on good management, sound accounting, determined fundraising, and diversified revenue. In this part two of our Sustainability Workshop, we feature two experts on membership models, plus two top staff from the Media Development Investment Fund and the Omidyar Network, who will talk about what they look for to invest in independent media around the world.
