In the Knight Center's Journalism in the Americas Blog, Alejandro Martinez writes about a new crowdfunding platform for independent journalism projects called Indie Voices:

Indie Voices seeks to become a meeting ground between entrepreneuring journalists and investors, where the former can find different sources of funding and put together their own financial strategy, and the latter — whether a single donor with $20 or a foundation with $10,000 — can choose different ways to channel their money.

[...]

Indie Voices is currently looking for more media projects to help fund through its platform, whether they are large news sites, individual blogs, documentaries or journalism-related technologies. It’s focusing on innovative projects that will help enrich the media ecosystem in developing countries.
