New tools, devices and technologies have proven to be powerful in reshaping journalism, whether in content distribution and consumption or in the newsroom structure itself. With the federal government committing $400 million to fund early-stage, venture-capital start-ups, could this money boost journalistic innovation? What, exactly, does media innovation look like?

Join Zach Seward, senior editor at Atlantic Media's device-centric business news venture Quartz; Michael De Monte, CEO of ScribbleLive; David Skok, co-author of Breaking News: Mastering the Art of Disruptive Innovation in Journalism and director of digital for Global News; and moderator Marissa Nelson, acting director of digital media for CBC News and Centres, for a discussion on what traditional media companies can learn from tech start-ups and how innovation can be fostered within newsrooms.

Where: TMX Broadcast Centre - Gallery, 130 King St. W., The Exchange Tower, Toronto
When: Thursday, January 31, Registration: 6:30 p.m. / Discussion: 7:00 p.m. / Reception: 8:30 p.m.
