The idea of the Journalism Incubator is inspired by the once famous Czech publishing house Melantrich. Its founders offer a common path to sustainable and ethical journalism free from economic and political pressures. We want to connect experienced media practitioners with hard-working entrants, design sustainable media projects, and involve honest experts from newsrooms in the Czech Republic and abroad. Much remains to be done to make this dream come true. This site is the first step. Help us move the incubator further. Sign up for the incubation and join our newsroom!
