Velocidad (which means “Velocity” in Spanish) will work with emerging Latin American digital media outlets that have strong leadership potential and are highly motivated to develop the necessary commercial, technical and editorial strategies to lay the foundations for an independent and sustainable news organization.
Under the direction of the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and SembraMedia, and with financial support from Luminate, Velocidad seeks to invest more than US$1.5 million between 2019 and 2021 to foster independent journalism in the region.
