Independent Media Accelerator, Steady
Independent media accelerator
Independent media makers: Let’s get down to business.
Win expert consulting to grow your online magazine, blog or podcast and a funding boost to go with it. We think that’s an offer you can’t refuse.
In collaboration with international experts from The Guardian, European Journalism Centre and Membership Puzzle, the European membership platform Steady is searching for publications to champion the future of independent media. Our judges will select three publications to benefit from expert consulting and €2,500 in funding to help build their membership program. Welcome to the inaugural Independent Media Accelerator.
As an independent publisher, memberships give you the freedom to do what you love and the means to make it even better.
Memberships are the key to a media landscape filled with diverse, independent voices. Members are loyal and committed — they offer sustainable support to independent publishers like you because they love to see your projects thriving.
Boost Your Project
Apply by December 1 to win a funding boost and expert consulting.
Funds to spend on what matters
You will receive €2,500 as an expense budget to spend on anything you need. In addition, we’ll waive our fees (usually 10% of your revenue) for the first six months of your membership program.
Consulting from industry experts
This includes member research, mentorship and on-the-ground-training, either in your own workspace or at our office in Berlin. Together, we will build the future of your publication – all the way from zero to earning your first member revenues.
