Media Viability Accelerator

Status: Closed

Organisation: Internews Network and Internews Europe

Deadline: 28/10/2022

Internews is inviting media organisations to answer a survey to inform the development of the Media Viability Accelerator – a tool aimed at helping media outlets find faster, simpler routes to sustainable income. Your contribution can be completely anonymous.

The Media Viability Accelerator, which is being created by Internews, hopes to help media outlets understand which monetisation strategies suit different types of market, different types of media, at different stages of their development. It will offer benchmarks that inform ambitious, but achievable targets, and make it easier to evaluate business performance with stakeholders.


Background: Announced at the 2021 Summit for Democracy, the Media Viability Accelerator is funded by USAID through the Internews-led INSPIRES program and is being implemented by a number of media development organisations.

How your data will be used: All data you share in this survey will be accessible by the media development organisations which contribute to defining the Media Viability Accelerator. Currently, these are: CIMA, Deutsche Welle Akademie, Fojo Media Institute, Free Press Unlimited, GFMD, Internews, IMS, IREX, MDIF, Media Foundation for West Africa, Reporters Without Borders, SembraMedia, Splice Media, Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Privacy policy: Your interaction with this survey is covered by Internews’ Privacy Policy, which is available here: https://internews.org/privacy-policy/.

Contact person: If you have any questions or feedback about the project of the form, please feel free to write to Artyom Liss, the Senior Project Manager of the Media Viability Accelerator aliss@internews.org
