Jan Schaffer, the executive director of J-Lab, wants to help media entrepreneurs find new ways to succeed.
A Pulitzer-Prize-winning business editor at the Philadelphia Inquirer, she left her daily journalism gig in 1994 to become one of the pioneers of the growing civic-journalism movement.
In 2002, she launched J-Lab to help journalists develop new projects with innovative technologies.
â€œI think journalism is very much in flux,â€ Schaffer said. â€œA lot of legacy news organizations have been disrupted. But at the same time, a lot of media entrepreneurs are coming up with entirely new media products that are very exciting.â€
Schaffer talks to It's All Journalism about media entrepreneurship and innovation in journalism and education.
