The Redesigned Sulzberger Executive Leadership Program at Columbia Journalism School Is Open For Applications From Rising Leaders in Media and Journalism


I’m proud of the impact we’ve made at Matter, the team we’ve built, and the people that we have transformed. But now it’s time for me to explore.


Today, we launch Open Matter: Local News Bootcamps with Google News Lab, News Media Alliance, and 4 Top J. schools.


With four new hires, the Matter team is ready to deepen our impact right when it is needed most.

Matter’s newly expanded team will allow us to deepen our impact in both San Francisco and New York City.


An informed and connected public is the bedrock of democracy. But with our journalistic institutions under threat economically, politically, and culturally, that bedrock is cracking. We need to strengthen our media ecosystem.


The New York Times joins Matter, Google News Lab supports our space, and we welcome 12 new media startups into our community.

Our incredible new space in Union Square, New York City, home to 7 startups in the Matter Six program


We’re expanding Matter to NYC…and bringing SF with us.


Invest in innovators.

Update: this role has now been filled. Thanks for your interest!


With a bigger Matter team and simpler application process, the dates are now set for the next Matter class. Are you in?
