Jamlab Mee-tup: Financing and monetising your civic tech platform or media start-up in Africa

Financing a new venture can be a daunting task, especially if you have no to minimal experience in soliciting funding.
And with the pandemic having interrupted many industries, many small organisations are to rethink how to remain sustainable in these uncertain times.
In this fourth Jamlab Meet-up, in collaboration with the Civic Tech Innovation Network we ask the questions: Who are the funders? and Where does one begin looking for funding?
During this conversation, we discuss funding strategies for civic tech and media innovation, and how organisations seeking funding or support from contemporary funders can better their position and prepare themselves.
We also learn about interesting models and approaches on how innovators can fund and sustain their ideas or platforms.
