Building a sustainable community to grow beyond today
Many media and events companies fail to build sustainable business models as they do not take a long term view of the market and dynamic of a rapidly changing media and technology landscape.
We at AI Media are building for the long term and have created a sustainable community based movement that welcomes a diverse set of people from all 4 corners of Africa. We want to tell more GOOD NEWS stories about innovation and entrepreneurism in the African AI sector.
Our content, groups, events and publications all have a FREE point of entry whilst providing meaningful CxO and Investor level insights via paid for seminars, conferences and workshops. Our open approach to partnering creates a win win for the entire community.
