"We have a sane business model... you don't spend more than you have coming in." Matt Bors is editor and founder of The Nib, the magazine that uses comics to tell stories about some of the big, serious issues facing the world. The magazine launched online first, as one of the sites that were part of Medium in its early days, and in this conversation he explains how that relationship came to an end, and how he ended up working with First Look Media, another company with lots of money to spend, and how that also came to an end as their priorities shifted. These days Matt is running the whole thing entirely independently on what he calls a “sane business model”, funded by his readers, and I was really interested to hear his thoughts on the experience of working with those big, wealthy partners, compared to the business he runs today.
