Indiegraf exists to help entrepreneurial journalists launch and grow digital news products. We offer three ways to get involved:
Join the Indie Network of small independent publishers pioneering a better way for journalism. The Network’s home is an exclusive Slack workspace where membership gets you access to exclusive community learning and funding opportunities from the Indiegraf team and the community as a whole. The Network is open to journalists who have launched or are actively working on preparing to launch, anywhere in the world. Network membership costs $50/year and grants are available for those who need it.
Indie School helps you learn about news entrepreneurship. When you’re ready to take the leap, apply for our next Indie News Challenge, which gets you from idea to your first subscribers in three months. We’re currently recruiting our next Indie News Challenge cohort available to anyone in North America, application deadline June 19. If you’re from outside of North America, you can also use this application to express your interest. The full cost of $5,000 per project is subsidized by our partners and the participant cost is $500. We can provide grants for those who need it.
Indie Engine provides the infrastructure you need to succeed. It includes a tech stack optimized for small publishers and the marketing team you need to reach and drive revenue from your audience. We’re currently seeking 4 pilot publishers in Canada; please fill out the below form if you’re interested. We’re hoping to offer Indie Engine outside Canada soon, so you can express your interest by submitting the form below. Thanks to subsidization from our funders, we’re able to offer the Indie Engine to our pilot publishers free of cost for the first six months.
