Founder & Program Manager
Media Lab Bayern
Lina Timm is founder and Program Manager of the Media Lab Bayern, an incubator for new ideas in digital journalism. The Media Lab Bayern supports talents and teams in founding media startups with mentoring programs and financial support.
Previous to this, Lina worked as a print and video journalist and always wondered whether there were so rare opportunities to bring in her passion for technology and innovation into her journalistic work. She studied German studies, media sciences and sociology in Hamburg and attended the Deutsche Journalistenschule (German School of Journalism) in Munich.
As a side project she founded the Slack community digital-journalism.rocks which is a place to share best practices and expertise for now over 700 digital journalists.
