Indian Country Media LLC and MiBiz Inc. are partnering to launch the business publication “Tribal Business News,” focusing on tribal economic development, entrepreneurism and government and policy issues.
The new initiative will be launched on Oct. 1.
Tribal Business News will offer news, analysis and research on a paywalled website and daily e-newsletter. It will also be offering business journalism tracking startups, entrepreneurship, M&A activity, business best practices and other economic news designed for native and non-native business readers.
Additionally, the company also plans to launch a print edition and other specialty products next year.
MiBiz is the launch partner with three of its executives playing key roles in the daily operations for the new publication. MiBiz publisher Brian Edwards will serve as associate publisher of the new initiative, editor Joe Boomgaard will take on managing editor duties and newsroom management, and Richard Tupica will become sales director.
