Accelerate Local is leading media innovation at scale in our mission to reinvent business models for news. Having launched six projects and 53 strategic partnerships with 43 local media companies this year, Accelerate Local has helped inform decisions and impact revenue growth for local media during this critical time in journalism.
Now, participants from among our six projects — The Branded Content Project, GNI Digital Subscriptions Lab, GNI Data Lab, Digital Transformation Lab for Publishers of Color, NewsFuel, and The TV Membership Project — share how their businesses have improved through Accelerate Local partnerships.
Accelerate Local supports all local media — participants and beyond — in their pursuit of sustainability and growth, which is why we continually publish collective learnings from our projects and the industry through dozens of case studies, presentations, reports, playbooks, guides, Q&As with experts and industry leaders, candid conversations and white papers.
Our work is only made possible through donations. Support local news and the work of Accelerate Local by making a tax-deductible donation today. Local Media Association will match every dollar up to $100,000 received now through the end of the year, and there are thank-you gifts for donations that surpass $100.
