First Programs of a New Provider

Are you reading Nancy Shives’ blog from the Frazier International History Museum? Here’s a story of a new content provider getting started. They’ve only done 5 programs so far, but already they are encouraging nearby museums to start offering content.

We were lucky to have many guest join us. On the 25th we had Fronda and Amy from the Muhammad Ali Museum just down the street. They are looking into starting a VC program and wanted to sit in and watch what we’re doing. We hope to work with them more in the future.

I think it’s awesome that they are sharing their first experiences. It helps the rest of us remember that we are partners with content providers, not just consumers of their content!
