Why I’m starting 4kreport
I recently started a Technology focused internet magazine, 4kreport.com based in Owerri to cover all the tech happenings in south eastern Nigeria and Africa as a whole From Tech startups ,Tech meetups , to gadgets and everything related to the industry.
You see, every creations, ideas and solutions needs to be discovered, documented and shown to potential users who are facing the problems you are trying to solve and this is where the role of a Technology focused internet magazine like 4kreport comes in.
In the late 90’s and early 2000’s we witnessed the lunching of today’s major big companies like Amazon, Facebook, PayPal etc. Michael Arrington saw the need for a way to share information and to get people informed about these people and companies that were making waves in the burgeoning world of Web 2.0.
In 2005 Michael created Techcrunch an American online publisher of technology industry news tell the world about this new innovations.
In 2012 When Lagos also experienced a major boom in it’s Tech ecosystem, Bankole Oluwafemi and Seyi Taylor also saw the need to inform people about emerging startups and tech product erupting from Lagos so they made Techcabal to do just that, with over 700-1,200 tech start-ups in Lagos and Africa as a whole, documented.
Adewale Yusuf is also doing amazing things with Techpoint, telling the world about the technologies made in Nigeria.
The south-eastern Tech community is a developing one with potential to grow into a large ecosystem like Lagos ,Cape town, niarobi and of course Silicon valley, filled with promising people with Talents and emerging Startups solving real life problems but yet to gain traction.
