Robert Niles, writing in the Online Journalism Review, made the following announcement in a January 15, 2010 post regarding the second edition of the News Entrepreneur Boot Camp, which is sponsored by the Knight Digital Media Center, in cooperation with OJR, the Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at USC's Marshall School of Business as well as the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism":
If you are thinking about starting your own online news website or blog - or if you've already made that move, but wondering where the money will come from - please consider applying for the second edition of our News Entrepreneur Boot Camp.
That's right, we're doing the camp again. The Knight Digital Media Center, in cooperation with OJR and the Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at USC's Marshall School of Business as well as the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, will select a dozen or so journalists to travel to Los Angeles in mid-May for the camp. There, you will work together and in one-on-one consultation with camp faculty to hone plans for your project - and its financial success.
Niles said, "Lots of other journalism organizations have jumped on the entrepreneurship bandwagon recently. But long-time OJR readers know that I've been writing about entrepreneurial journalism for years, and that OJR put on what may have been the first industry conference solely devoted to the topic, back in 2006.”
