At our first #JamlabMeetup​ for the year, the conversation was about stories of media innovation and entrepreneurship. We unpacked where spaces are for media innovation and especially for new media start-ups.

Learn about where the gaps and opportunities are as well as finding the ‘white spaces’ for digital media start-ups.

Panellists during this session were Bilal Randeree — Director at the Media Development Investment Fund (Africa and MENA) and Dr Njoki Chege — Director at the Media Innovation Center at Aga Khan University (Kenya).
