Don't Just Create, Disrupt


I slept like a baby, thanks to the creative minds of geniuses who created Light, Air Conditioners, a Bed to Sleep on, they all disrupted the way things were done or achieved and I'm very grateful to them, this entire post is dedicated to innovators, founders, creative minds who work tirelessly to ensure things are much more simplified in the world  today. Thank You!

Don't Just Create, Disrupt, you'll be loved for it.

Through out my venture to create iFixng.com (if you haven't hired artisans or handymen via my platform and you live in Lagos, you have sinned), I'm always asked one simple question, which is; "Why iFix?, Whats the motivation?", the simple truth remains that; my love for the blue collar sector is what drives me to do what I do, changing the status quo on how handymen and artisans are perceived and engaged, redefining the future of work. This is my motivation, the very reason I wake up every day excited to work with my team at iFixng, it's more than just creating a platform for me, but disrupting the entire blue collar sector.

And this brings me right to you, 'cause like I promised It's my solemn responsibility to guide young founders (yeah right, like I'm old, lol) on how to really be successful at what they do. Before you create that next solution the world really needs, be sure you're really passionate about it, changing and disrupting the way it's currently done to what the world desperately needs.
A point in question would be a few successful founders in Lagos ('cause that's where I live), who are thriving at what they do; Jason Njoku of irokotv, Mark Essien of hotels.ng, Jobberman Partners, Tolet.com.ng... these people have managed to change the way business was done before in their various industries and thus have emerged victorious.

To further drive home my point; Don't Just Create, Disrupt the entire ecosystem and you'll definitely emerge a Bill Gates of this generation.

Thank You for Checking out today's blog post, very brief 'cause I had a lot to do today, but straight to the point, and I hope you get the message. See ya!

Tech Cabals Instead of Tech Eco-Systems?

I've grown tired of hearing the word "Tech Eco-system" what does it really mean? my friends at bite.tech helped me understand it better; 

"a tech ecosystem is an interconnected, interdependent network of various players that combine to create innovative products and services in tech. These players primarily include tech startups; more established tech companies; tech company founders; investors and investment groups; mentors and organisations that provide business support. A successful tech ecosystem allows for many smaller companies to bring innovation to market. "
after reading this it becomes clearer that we're far from having a tech eco-system in Nigeria, though a few people like Mark Essien (boss at hotels.ng), OO Nwoye (the Nigerian) and a few others are endlessly trying to build such environments, our inherent nature to have cabals keeps diminishing the efforts of these great men. 
I'll give you a personal account; I attended a "tech party"…

YCombinator Declares Intention To Start Up In China

High-profile U.S. startup accelerator; Y Combinator is making a push to bring more China-based startups into its program after it announced its first official event in the country. The company has announced plans to enter China and welcome startups in all phases to join their program whether it's at concept phase, product testing phase or fast-growing phase.

Y Combinator said that they are looking forward to meeting and working with more Chinese entrepreneurs and announced the launch of their Startup School on May 19th at Beijing Tsinghua University. The event will be free to attend — though attendees might apply for a ticket — with the goal of showing the benefits of participation in its U.S. program.

Has Mark Zuckerberg Forgotten About Our Satellite?

I have an unconditional love for Mark Zuckerberg (oh Zuck my man, if you've never heard of him, you may now rest in peace), he's one of our most celebrated Tech Heroes for all his accomplishments and immense contributions to new media and the tech community at large. He's recently taken a philanthropic view with his corporate social responsibility projects at Facebook, Africa included.

He Posted this on his Facebook page on the 5th of October, 2015:

He promised to launch a satellite called Amos- 6 in collaboration with Eutelsat to help beam Internet connectivity to large parts of Africa (especially sub-saharan Africa) so people living in remote regions can equally have access to the internet (and grandma can finally signup on facebook lol).
Space X (a rocket company owned by the batman of Tech; Elon Musk) which was contracted to launch this satellite into space so we can start enjoying "beta Internet",  unfortunately, accidentally destroyed this Satellite during one…
