KDMC reports how CJET helps news startups

Placeblogger’s Lisa Williams provided a great preview of the New Jersey CJET (Community Journalism Executive Training) program that took place May 16-18 at Montclair State. We’ll have a post detailing our work there shortly with our great coaches and the entrepreneurial publishers knitting the New Jersey news ecosystem, but wanted to post this first.

CJET is a part business-capacity training, part sales training, part group-encounter therapy. But the real point is focusing training on where publishers have the greatest needs, giving them tools that carry forward after they’ve left the sessions and building the framework for a collaborative network.

Lisa’s piece captures that – and the Coats2Coats strategy of focusing on working at the intersections.
