He further explained the Techpreneur magazine is crafted to engage, inspire and inform readers who have entrepreneurship interests in the tech industry. “The magazine captures of interviews with young and seasoned “technopreneurs”, who share their stories, give insights into the industry as well as guide tech start-ups towards greater successes,” he added.
Subsequent editions about the Techpreneur Magazine will be published quarterly each year. Its maiden edition focuses on personality spotlights, and engaging features such as “Kids and Tech”.
