This paper aims to characterize the scenario of entrepreneurship in Brazilian journalism startups and identify issues, challenges and results on value creation opportunities for small and microenterprises, with the creation and operation of information services on digital platforms. After doing a literature review regarding the economic context of news industry, we have conducted an empirical research to characterize three recent cases of journalism startups in Brazil, considering their management strategies and the business models they adopt, aiming to identify the challenges to make these operations sustainable. Based on interviews with the three startups' managers, this study examines some critical factors for the success or failure of such projects and identifies weaknesses that limit their growth and may even lead to the end of their operations.
