Project Liberty Digital Incubator
The Project Liberty Digital Incubator helps stimulate the growth of digital media startup & established companies in the Philadelphia region.
Every six months, three start-ups are selected from the applicant pool and are provided with an opportunity to work from within one of the nation’s largest media companies, Interstate General Media (IGM) (parent company of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, Philadelphia SportsWeek, & Philly.com).
Project Liberty is funded by a grant from the John S. & James L. Knight Foundation, operated by Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern PA, and hosted at Interstate General Media’s headquarters in downtown Philadelphia.

- More support – Project Liberty employs Drexel co-op students to provide support at no cost to the start-ups.
