NYC – Berlin Exchange for Media Entrepreneurs & Creatives

The Made in NY Media Center (30 John Street) is excited to announce the launch of a new media fellowship initiated and funded by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg in partnership with Startup Germany, which will offer digital-media professionals the opportunity to trade living and working environments with their transatlantic peers. The program will give two professionals and young entrepreneurs from the Berlin region a three-month fellowship in New York, while two New York counterparts will be invited to spend three months in Berlin-Brandenburg.

The fellowship will include travel expenses, accommodation, work space in a co-working facility and a monthly financial allowance. In addition, an individually tailored mentoring program is planned for fellowship recipients. The media residency program will begin in the spring of 2015, offering fellowship recipients the opportunity to attend industry events such as Berlin Web Week and Internet Week New York, both of which take place in May. The goal of the program is to strengthen the international networks linking these two media hubs.

Deadline to apply is November 30. More information here.
