We support media entrepreneurs building a more informed, connected, and empowered society through our 4-month start-up accelerator in San Francisco.

This is where the values of public media meet the mindsets of Silicon Valley entrepreneurship. Read more…



We invest $50k to give you four months of runway to do needfinding with your customers, prototype your solutions, and build traction with your audience.

A structured program

Our program kicks off with an intensive design thinking and entrepreneurship bootcamp followed by a regular rhythm of design reviews, mentoring sessions, and guest speaker workshops building up to a final demo day.

Access to an audience

Develop your venture alongside our media partners and test your prototype with a large audience.

Join a community bold enough to build
tomorrow’s meaningful media ventures
from scratch.

Short feedback loops

Immerse yourself in a creative, collaborative culture designed to help you be user-centered, prototype-driven, and fail quickly to succeed sooner.

Build together

You’ll work elbow to elbow with other media entrepreneurs and start-ups on the same journey in our creative space near South Park in San Francisco.

A hub of media innovation

Be at the center of a community of mentors, investors, and organizational partners sharing feedback, insights, and connections and coming together for design reviews, events, and workshops.
