Those who’ve scrolled through Netflix’s endless list of television shows and movies might have come across Uzodinma Iweala’s “Beast of No Nation,” a 2015 adaptation of his novel of the same title.

Iweala’s novel tells the story of fictional West African children being forced to become soldiers.

The author continues to make the voices of the African continent heard with his new start-up media company, Ventures Africa.

Ventures Africa is an online platform that represents a “multiplicity of voices” through news, analysis and discussions.

A platform that provides an “alternative to mainstream media,” Ventures Africa will champion an evolving Africa and explore the complexities of the continent through a local lens.
