As many of you know, I spent some time in early October at a conference sponsored by Unity: Journalists of Color. The NewU program pairs up old guys like me with smart, talented entrepreneurs who are making things happen on the new frontier of media. I was fortunate to be paired up with Yvonne Leow, founder of the storytelling/fund-raising site Noowah.

At the end of our conference, Yvonne and her classmates recorded 1 minute video pitches and are now competing for $10,000 in startup cash. (Read Yvonne’s post about the competition here). I particularly liked Yvonne’s marriage of compelling stories and raising funds for good causes and smaller non-profits. If you have a moment, won’t you do me a solid and watch Yvonne’s pitch and cast a vote for her? Feel free to watch all of the pitches and vote for the ones that you believe have the best chance at success.You can vote for one pitch from each of the affiliate groups per day.

All of these NewU entrepreneurs are blazing new trails in media. I can’t wait to see where they are taking us.
