A film that inspires social change. An article that influences global debate. A podcast that illuminates current events. A musical that ignites interest in American history.
Our culture is shaped by storytellers and journalists. Media, when used as a force for good, can open minds, increase civic engagement, and strengthen our democracy.
The media industry today is moving through a period of profound transformation. New forces in Hollywood have upended the entertainment business. Social media companies have captured a large and growing share of our attention. News organizations are under financial strain at a time when the principle of a free and independent press has come under attack.
Despite the massive changes and challenges, we believe entrepreneurs will build the next generation of innovative businesses, reshaping how media is consumed. We also believe emerging artists and voices will usher in a new era of important work. Emerson Collective invests in storytelling and journalism that pursues truth, sparks action, and contributes to a more just society.
