Last class for Philadelphia incubator Project Liberty
The Project Liberty Digital Incubator is accepting applications for its third and final class.
In 2011, Philadelphia Media Network (now called Interstate General Media) was given $250,000 by the Knight Foundation to launch an incubator program in Pennsylvania. The funding guaranteed at least three cycles of the Project Liberty program. One class has already graduated and the second is just wrapping up. Now the incubator is looking for startups for its third and final class.
Companies should be focused on news media, e-commerce, and mobile apps. Successful applicants will work out of Philly.com's Center City headquarters. They'll also have access to Philly.com as a marketing platform.
The deadline to apply is November 5th.
Here’s a look at Project Liberty’s second class:
- Rumble News Ltd.: The Israeli company has developed a social reader app that allows users to share interesting news and blog content.
- StartUp Productions L.L.C.: A Philadelphia company with an internet platform called Zaahah that links users with similar searching interests.
- TransOut Inc: Their product, TapCliq, allows developers to improve the effectiveness of their ads on mobile devices.
The three have already received more than $2 million in angel and venture-capital investment.
