Seper: Two questions for entrepreneurial journalists

This week, Chris Seper served as a visiting professional in the journalism department at Eastern. Seper is a journalism department alum, served as editor-in-chief of the Daily Eastern News, and is now the CEO of MedCityNews, a journalism startup company that covers innovation in health care technology.

While he was here, he spoke with three students who are taking an independent study class with me on entrepreneurial journalism (using Mark Briggs Entrepreneurial Journalism book, which features Seper and MCN in chapter 3). As he asked the students about their startup ideas, he mentioned two questions that every investor will ask. I recorded his answers on video above. The transcript is on the YouTube page, or you can read the closed captions.
