About Big Cabal Media

Big Cabal Media (BCM) is on a mission to create a new generation of media brands and provide content for the digital African audiences, both on and off the continent. Our brands, TechCabal and Zikoko deliver smart and sophisticated content in relatable and easily digestible ways. Through our Cabal Creative Studio, we work with a wide range of clients across different industries, creating video content, graphic design, providing marketing strategy and related services.

About TechCabal

TechCabal has been one of the most important publications covering technology and the startup ecosystem in Africa over the last five years. From reporting on the most important happenings to providing insight and analysis, and seminal events and hosting conversations with major players, we’ve played an essential role in understanding tech in Africa.

We are in the middle of a pivotal transformation, aiming to go beyond providing insight and news to tech insiders to a broader mission that will see us become the most important publication covering the business and impact of technology in Africa, speaking not only to insiders but to everyone affected by and curious about technology on the continent.

Two statements guide us in this transformation:

  1. There is technology in everything

Most current tech coverage on the continent narrowly focuses on startups and a few big and obvious larger tech companies. We counter that approach by noting that technology will be the biggest driver of growth across all industries on the continent over the next few decades. Therefore we must look beyond the funding announcements and exciting but economically inconsequential startups to documenting the real business and impact of technology on the continent.

  1. Everyone is invited

The impact of technology isn’t limited to founders, VCs and tech bros on Twitter. It encompasses everyone from hopeful youth looking to tech to create opportunities in high-unemployment markets, to business people looking to bring their organizations into the 21st century, government officials looking for growth in their economies and everyone else curious about where technology is taking us all.
