Hong Kong, 11 January 2019 – The Journalism and Media Studies Centre (JMSC) at The University of Hong Kong today announced the creation of Media-X, a prototype fund to promote media innovation and the development of new media and social enterprises.

In today’s rapidly evolving digital world, media’s impact on society is greater and more important than ever. As new challenges and new audiences emerge with unique and unmet needs, Media-X will explore solutions to the problems experienced in the current media landscape and cultivate the region’s next generation of media innovators and entrepreneurs.

Media-X exists to support media entrepreneurs, inventors and technologists from East and Southeast Asia to take their ideas to prototype creation.

Media-X operates as an incubator, allowing media entrepreneurs to refine ideas, build out business plans, work on product-market fit, network in the startup ecosystem, and implement a prototype.

Two annual grants will be awarded to businesses/entrepreneurs to support their continued growth.
