They're in a golden age of media. Everything you need to create, discover, distribute, and amplify content is now possible on your phone. For entrepreneurs, this opens the door to creating new media products of utility and relevance that weren't possible even five years ago.

This user-focused product mindset is what they hope to help you with. They'll provide the funding, knowledge, mentoring, and community — you bring the ideas.See more
