About Rohan

None. This is my first start-up after 30 years in the media as reporter, editor, manager, online producer, fundraiser and media rights activist. But I have already scored some funding on the basis of an idea alone: with no business plan, no CTO, no start-up experience. So, presumably, a good idea. As for me: I do journalism and digital media R&D independently, as dad, seaside dog-walker, writer, semi-retired war correspondent and now part-time hipster start-up online media maven.

I became a journalist to come as close as possible to the heart of the world. - Henry Luce
