Independent media plays a critical role in a functioning and accountable government—as a watchdog on corruption and a driver of civic discourse.
Informed by our research with media organizations around the world, as well as our expertise in digital and mobile technologies, Reboot works with media actors to understand and engage audiences, develop sustainable business models, and produce high-quality data-driven journalism.
Our holistic approach to media development seeks to strengthen the ecosystem that supports independent media by connecting media organizations with civil society and government reformers. More effective in collaboration than in isolation, these groups acting together are a powerful force to amplify accountability for all.
