Eddy Helm - Managing Director, yMedia

Eddy: “Essentially yMedia is a not-for-profit or a social enterprise. We set up to connect tertiary students with community organisations and the industry to implement live information communication technology projects – or communications projects that have a digital slant. We predominantly run a challenge that runs for eight weeks within the year and through that challenge, we form teams of students, community groups and then an industry mentor and they have their eight weeks to develop a project from brief – to conception to actual implementation.”
