Accelerating independent media in Latin America

Velocidad is an accelerator programme that provides funding and consulting for news startups operating in Latin America. It is funded by Luminate and run by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and SembraMedia.

In addition to funding, Velocidad provides non-financial support through consulting services for the organisations chosen for the programme. Experts in fields ranging from business development to audience engagement work with those selected to ensure they have the skills to diversify revenues, build more engaged audiences, and ultimately, develop stronger and more sustainable media ventures with greater scale and impact.
