Story Media Labs is a social enterprise that transforms community through storytelling. Launched as a Business-As-Mission ("BAM") with a seed grant from ODPC 9T5 Ministry's Entrepreneurship Initiative, Story Media Labs aims to create authentic film and marketing content that breaks through superficiality and invites people to more meaningfully connect with local businesses, non-profits, and government.
