Perfect Client
Media companies and business leaders interested in extending their intelligence and market share in the fastest growing demographic segments of the community. The perfect client is focused on the double bottom line business model - doing well by doing good.
Target Market(s)
The Media Diversity Council provides a nexus for business leaders, educators and students to develop new models of education and community engagement.
Urgent Needs and Compelling Desires of Target Market(s)
Due to consolidation, the media industry has become less diverse over the last 20 years while America continues to become ever more diverse. With a splintering market and revenue models making a tectonic shift, media companies unable to offer authentic cultural insight into the fastest growing segments, risk becoming irrelevant.
Opportunities said Target Market(s) would love to invest in
Scalable youth outreach program that exposes large numbers of students to media, entrepreneurship and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) fields, identifies those who demonstrate aptitude and provides them with resources to flourish into tomorrow's professionals.
Benefits of investible opportunities to Target Market(s)
Ability to impart the traits needed for students to flourish as entrepreneurs and members of the workforce with minimal capital investment. Enhanced strategic insight into the fastest growing demographic segments of the marketplace.
"Other interests" (Traveling, wine, books, etc...):
Music, film, sports.
What does your company do to focus on its purpose?
Over the next year, the Media Diversity Council is conducting an outreach program entitled Media Xperiments in Austin, Houston, San Antonio and Dallas, TX. Students tour media facilities and compete as they develop portfolios for internships in their community.
