Great news for Norm Lewis! He has been awarded a $10,000 grant from Proctor & Gamble to help develop a new course in “Media Entrepreneurship.” The course will allow students to identify how they can foster ‘intrepreneurship’ in a legacy media organization and create a prototype for a viable digital media startup.

The grant, funded through The P&G Fund of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, will be used to enhance the course in two ways: providing student groups with start-up funds to develop prototypes of their digital media products and bringing in a speaker to present a successful start-up digital media project.

Norm worked closely with Yulia Strekalova on the grant application. Congrats Norm and Yulia!
