What happened in Season 4?

The Global Editors Network has already run three successful Startups for News seasons and the fourth season (2014-2015) was launched in January 2015. 

From January to May, GEN showcased 18 cutting-edge startups. These 18 startups will face off through online pitch battles. Every two weeks, the video presentations of two startups working on a similar theme were posted on the GEN website. The public voted for their favorite startup. The 8 winning teams won a free ticket to the GEN Summit in June 2015.

During the summit, they will have the  opportunity  to  pitch  their  work  to  our network of leading media innovators. They will also be able to showcase their product in a dedicated ‘Startups for News’ stand at the GEN expo. 

The winner will receive private mentoring sessions with GEN board members, great exposure to our powerful network of media innovators through GEN’s social media channels and our newsletter and a stand at the GEN Summit 2016.
