CMCI's Media Economies Design Lab (MEDLab) and research fellow Libby O'Neall (Jour'21) produced the 2021 Public Benefit Report for the Colorado Sun. This report helps fulfill the Sun's obligation as a Colorado Public Benefit Corporation, an incorporation structure that enables companies to dedicate themselves to a public mission, not just private benefit.
Part of the College of Media, Communication and Information, MEDLab is a think tank for community ownership and governance in media organizations. One of its programs, Exit to Community, partners with interested startups to explore and develop alternative exit pathways through policy research and popular education. This month, Exit to Community will host two webinars focused on corporate social responsibility and exploring new alternatives to standard models of startup ownership.
