Drawing on ten years of expertise, the Texas Tribune wants to coach you on its money-making lessons
“People just want to learn a playbook. At the high level, it’s motivational, but at the grassroots level, it’s answering what do your proposals look like, what does your budget look like, how are you talking to donors and members.”

The app is for “consumers who want to be plugged into the big tech stories without searching through Twitter or watered-down general news sites.”
