Media-X is 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. We operate 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.Media-X provides a unique opportunity for inspired media entrepreneurs to find their product-market fit through a process of trial and error. We support entrepreneurs in their ideation and implementation through mentorship, and giving access to global industry experts, business development professionals, and leading academics.

We encourage all interested entrepreneurs to take an audience-centered design thinking approach to create solutions to media challenges and problems.

This is the first time this prototype grant is being offered. For more information about the initiative and/or to sign up please visit: www.Media-X.Asia
