History of Timsmek
Timothy Chukwuemka Onyebuchi
Founder, Timsmek Global Publishers.
The name, Timsmek was first used in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria on 16th July, 2013. Then it was Timsmek Technologies. The services then were computer system supplies, networking, training and printing of event cards and posters.
Timothy Chukwuemka Onyebuchi, the founder of Timsmek Global Publishers, later, in January 2014, moved to Port Harcourt for his tertiary education at University of Port Harcourt (Uniport) and continued with the name Timsmek. He rendered graphic design services part time and offered online registration forms processing services for his fellow students. The graphics he designed he called Timsmek Graphics and the online forms processing he called Timsmek Solutions.
As he continued his part time entrepreneurial endeavour while schooling in Uniport, he won the trust and loyalty of many of his coursemates and some lecturers. When he graduated in 2018 with a CGPA of 4.43 on a 5.0 scale, he began the process of registering Timsmek Global Publishers.
The initiative and burden for an online publishing company came upon him when he found it difficult reading good materials from African writers online. For instance, most of the written works found online, that were written on Africa, were negative and untrue – especially those articles on the history or culture of Africa. He resolved to publish African creative and intellectual writers, make their works available on the globe so scholars can readily access. The story of a people can best be told by the people in the story.
On January 14, 2019, Timsmek Global Publishers got registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigeria as an enterprise and was assigned Business Number 276141.
Timothy met some select friends of his who love reading and writing, love to acquire and share new knowledge and they agreed to work together to render excellent services at reviewing and selecting of materials for publications.
To be the leading print and web publishing house in Africa by engaging the best hands and equipment, staying true to everyone.
To be the publishers that will be mentioned when a great work is about to be published, offering irresistible reviews and excellent language polishings.
