SembraMedia: Dedicated to supporting digital media entrepreneurs
Janine launched SembraMedia in 2015 to help independent online media entrepreneurs who publish content in Spanish to become more sustainable and successful.
The nonprofit project is born out of her work over the last decade as a teacher and consultant with media companies and entrepreneurs. As the executive director, she manages a growing team from more than a dozen countries in Latin America and Spain who are researching digital media projects, building an online directory, and developing a variety of training programs and support services.

Janine first discovered the Internet in 1995 in Northern California. As she explored into this new medium, she learned HTML and started building websites. In the process, she got “geekier” than she ever imagined. Since 1996, she’s written or coauthored more than 25 books about the Internet, web design, and social media.
