Today, we begin a new journey into storytelling. I finally started my company this year, in May to be precise. As a motivated young man, I jumped into the entrepreneurship pool not knowing what to expect. I had finished my MBA months earlier and thought, “What good is an MBA when you’re not running a business?” Right? Right!
I’ve since learnt that entrepreneurship isn’t a pool but an ocean. Only the brave can weather oceans. Am I brave you ask? Hahaha, *gulps*. Well, I like to think so.
FIREWORKS is a company that combines storytelling with technology to give meaningful experiences. We like to think of our company as whatever comes out of a WALT DISNEY and APPLE union.
Besides providing creative, digital and brand-storytelling services for our clients, we also build our own brands. Thus, since we launched Fireworks Creative Media five months ago, we’ve launched two brands; TORITORI and now YOUNG.
With TORITORI we will document Nigeria’s story through the eyes of Nigerians. Now with YOUNG, a magazine and/or digital publication, we want to document young people’s narratives about everything. Yes, everything!
YOUNG will focus on commentary and analysis of almost every thing that can seen as of interest to young people, in a youthful and interesting way. We will cover everything from pop culture to policies to politics and more.
YOUNG is a work in progress and we hope we can build a community of writers and readers passionate about making the world a better place one story at a time.
To help launch and run I called on an old friend who is talented and experienced in the digital media business. Thus, Peter Akinnusi will serve as Brand Director and Content Strategist as we set off on this journey.
As a growing company, with our sights on consistent expansion we are keen on carrying you, our audience along. You can be part of this story, airing your views in a way that traces out the outlines of history forever.
If you are interested in being part of our team, we’ll love to hear from you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org today.
And with that YOUNG is launched! Welcome to a new experience.
