Media Innovation

We are leading the transformation of global journalism.

ICFJ helps the world’s truth tellers use technology to enhance news coverage and connect more deeply with their audiences. Early on, we identify – and spread – important trends, from data journalism to immersive storytelling. We nurture fact-checking groups and technologies at a time of rampant misinformation. And we are seeding successful news startups in the face of government crackdowns and changing business models.
