PolicyMic founders

They are New Media Rockstars, a quintessential Gen Y entrepreneur story. It goes like this … met in college, graduated, got jobs they quickly grew bored with, then decided to do what they loved – argue politics. From this passion came PolicyMic, a news and opinion site targeted at Millennials (think Slate meets BuzzFeed and Upworthy). Their goal is to make shareable smart content with shareable being the operative word.

This week we have selected two business partners as the Grounded Leader(s) of the Week: Chris Altchek and Jake Horowitz, founders of PolicyMic.com.

The two-year old start-up has already attracted venture capital and backers, roughly $4.7 million in funding. In January, Altchek and Horowitz  earned spots on Forbes’ latest 30 Under 30 list.  They are promising young talent in the current chaotic media business, figuring out how to make a difference while building (not climbing) their own ladder.

Passionate about creating a digital media model that disrupts the media we currently know, coupled with a drive to succeed makes Altchek and Horowitz our Grounded Leaders of the Week.

Key Lesson:  Successful leaders derive great satisfaction from the struggle itself.  Pursuing the goal can be as fulfilling as achieving the goal.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering
    what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is great blog.

    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
