Entrepeneur profiles: Anversal

Anversal

Anversal is a newspaper and editorial design firm, founded in April 2009 by Olga Lamas, Víctor Gil and Teresa Domingo. The three of them are journalists, and worked together at the studio Cases i Associats for 10 years on all kinds of editorial projects before founding their own firm. One of their latest projects was the design of the newspaper Ara, but they have worked as well on the re-design of the portuguese newspaper Destake and other editorial and content planning projects for Time Out.

Víctor Gil used to work as an art director in the romanian newspaper Adevarul and the sunday edition of The Independent before founding his own firm. He says that the current economic situation “hasn’t been an obstacle for our company, beyond the usual: lower budgets and delayed payments”. Víctor insists to new entrepeneurs in the importance of communication and having a carefully nurtured contact network of potential clients.

Key data:

  • Start up costs: 10.000€
  • Staff at launch and today: 3.

December 21st: Journalists & entrepeneurs

Journalists Entrepeneurs Finally, it’s time for the second BCNMediaLab meeting. It will be on Tuesday, December 21st, at 19.30h in the bar 37 Grados in Barcelona.

Journalists & entrepeneurs: In the next BCNMediaLab we want to discuss an option that is increasingly popular among journalists: to become entrepeneurs. Journalists are building online micro news sites, social networks, independent audiovisual production companies, PR and communication agencies… Fortunately, there is a growing number of examples. What kind of knowledge and resources are necessary? Which ideas are more likely to succeed? and to fail? Is it a viable option for anybody, or only for a few?

We have invited four journalists-entrepeneurs to answer this and other questions, and to tell us their own experiences.

After the debate, do not leave so fast and join us for a Christmas beer in 37 Grados. Please, sign up here. See you on Tuesday 21st at 19.30.

Meanwhile, keep an eye on this blog as we will collect some ideas about this topic.
