This interview is with Caroline Avakian, founder and CEO of SourceRise, a news media startup connecting journalists and NGOs. Caroline, an Emmy-nominated TV correspondent, is a social entrepreneur, forging a new path for foreign and crisis news reporting by increasing the media’s access to on-the-ground expert sources in the developing world. In this podcast, we discuss the state of journalism, the opportunity for new forms of collaboration and of finding new sources via Caroline’s startup. SourceRise also happened to be the winner of Global Editors’ Network Startup for News Media Award.
