Thank you for your interest in New U: News Entrepreneurs Working through UNITY, a project funded by the Ford Foundation and supported by UNITY: Journalists of Color. This project is designed to give journalists of color training in entrepreneurship, and support them as they develop their specific business concepts using the tools New U provides.
Those accepted as a New U Fellow become part of a unique team: each Fellow is assigned a direct mentor who has already launched a small business. Participants will also spend two and a half tightly-scheduled days listening to and learning from industry experts – venture capitalists, legal experts, marketing and communications professionals, writers and people who call themselves “serial entrepreneurs”.
