Hi! My name is Claritza Jimenez. I work as a news producer at Associated Press Television News (APTN) in D.C. I'm also the 2015 JAWS Entrepreneurial Fellow. I'm working on an idea to develop a product or platform to better connect journalists to subject matter experts who come from ethnic minority backgrounds and/or are women. Two key components of getting this idea off the ground is how to find and vet the sources, build the database and use mobile technology to connect journalists to the sources. I'm also interested in video journalism, broadcast news, the business of media and Nutella :-)
