Who We Are

A Bit About Us

Democracy is broken and there is a dire need to fix it. At the lab we don’t pretend to know how to fix it but we bet on four things. Moonshot! – We need to tinker a lot to find the best solutions, we believe intuitively that the silver bullet to our dysfunctional democratic systems would be simple. Collaboration! – We need an inspired, envisioned crowd to make this journey with. This crowd will develop new crafts, and form new communities of practice that will become “citizen institutions” Technology! Aha! Without which there couldn’t be any hope. New tools, bring new realities, digital tech is the fire re-discovered. Finally, Journalism the fourth estate of the realm and the calvary! Without which citizens will never be able to demand for accountability and transparency. The lab enjoys  the wealth of experience of our founder who built the biggest citizen journalism platform in Africa.
