    Hey all, me and a few friends of mine have gained experienced writing music blogs and also reviewing music for some big-name websites over the last couple of years. We've just finished uni and want to start our own website and collaborate to make something great and unique.

    We were thinking about approaching media publishing companies to perhaps have a meeting with them about this idea. I won't name the company, but we saw their portfilio of magazines and websites and they lack the kind of content we would want to make, so at least there's a market they are not catering to.

    Is it viable that, using our experience, we may be able to approach this media company and see if they will help fund us to create a start-up? And if so, how would you even get in contact with people in that position??

    Thank you!

    there are better places to get startup money. My experience with media companies are that they pretend to be interested and steal your idea. Try looking somewhere like ideastap and always hold back with your big idea...
