Hello, we're Splice. We celebrate media startups in Asia.

Our mission is to drive radical change by supporting bold, forward-looking media startups in Asia. In order to do this, we report on, teach, transform, and fund newsrooms in Asia.

Our newsletters are read by some of the smartest people in global media.

We’re Alan Soon and Rishad Patel, and there’s more about us here.

Splice Beta is online all September. See the program, subscribe to the calendar, and buy tickets here!

The Splice Beta Fund is a prototyping grant that helps news and media entrepreneurs in Asia to quickly ideate, launch, test, and iterate products and services for audiences and customers. See our six grantees here!

Splice Lights On is our way of supporting the media community. We are working with Facebook to distribute $5,000 micro-grants in support of small- to mid-sized news orgs and their freelancers in Asia financially affected by Covid-19. See the grantees here.

Splice Low-Res is our virtual community check-in for media startups. Register, watch, sponsor, or stay in the loop here.

Splice is available for speaking engagements, to run workshops, product sponsorships, research, design audits, and consulting. Email us.

We also have a Telegram group. Come say hi.
