Andrew Haeg, a veteran journalist and technology entrepreneur, recently was named the first entrepreneur-in-residence for the Mercer Center for Collaborative Journalism.

With more than 15 years experience as a journalist, Haeg is the founder of Groundsource, a mobile research and engagement platform for researchers and journalists. He previously was involved with American Public Media, where he co-founded the Public Insight Network, an online initiative that incorporates audience knowledge into journalism, according to a news release.

A former reporter for the Minnesota Public Radio News, Haeg was a correspondent for The Economist and was a fellow at Stanford University, where he co-created a Redesigning Journalism class.

“The challenges facing journalism today are of unprecedented scale and scope, but I believe there are greater opportunities than ever before to serve the information needs of the public,” Haeg said in the news release. “I can’t imagine a better place to explore the future of community-centered journalism than at Mercer University’s Center for Collaborative Journalism.
