Splice Beta Online

Following the challenges of international travel restrictions brought on by Covid-19, Splice Beta 2020 has gone digital! We are proud to present Splice Beta Online, a month long digital festival dedicated to celebrating media startups in Asia. The aim is to support reporting, teaching, advising, transforming and connecting funders with media startups through an ecosystem-based approach.
