This week marks 5 years since we launched Jamlab Africa, a project of the journalism department at Wits University. When we started we set out to support African innovators who were bringing new approaches, ideas, audiences and information to the media landscape. Through our accelerator programme we have supported 24 teams from sub-Saharan Africa, 13 of which were women-led start-ups and helped 6 teams obtain external funding. We have showcased journalism and innovation stories from countries such as Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Senegal, Somalia and South Africa and we will continue to support and explore journalism and media on the continent.
We would like to thank our readers for being part of the Jamlab community and we hope you will continue to walk this journey with us.
