The Journalism and Media Lab (Jamlab) Accelerator Programme (JAP) is a six-month hothouse programme for early-stage journalism and media start-ups. It provides teams with the tools, facilities, contacts, and support necessary to realise their ideas and ambitions.
The programme offers a unique opportunity to fast-track your initiative. It will provide you with the tools, facilities, contacts, and support necessary to convert your ideas and ambitions into a commercially viable venture or product.
Twenty-four (24) teams have taken part in four iterations of the accelerator, with six of them succeeding in securing additional investment immediately after the programme.
This sub-Saharan Africa accelerator programme they are running will largely take place virtually due to the Covid-19 travel restrictions imposed by numerous countries in Africa and globally. The programme will run from September 2021 to February 2022.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 13-Aug-21.
