Your voice in technology. Read about startups and help the best companies succeed!
We are pleased to announce the upcoming release of an innovative magazine. For the first time in history, there will be a publication written by startup companies and tech enthusiasts.
Think of the Bleacher Report ... Wikipedia ... and Twitter ... all user generated content. It's tech's turn for the public to have a voice.
Advertisers: please refer to www.citizentekk.com for website advertising options!
Why Citizen Tekk?
We are 100% startups. We only cover startups and the articles will be written by startups and tech experts - because they know the industry best!
Unlike the current model for tech journalism, we will never cover corporate technology. More than any other industry, tech is dominated by the top four billion-dollar corporations. We want to promote startups by giving them a separate space!
Third, the JOBS Act will cause a shift come January 2013. Now is the time to create an independent and unbiased source of information on startup trends.
Last but not least, if we succeed, we will expand Citizen Tekk in some seriously unimaginable ways. This magazine is for consumers, crowd-funders, startups and everyone in-between.
We want to connect you with the people who are creating technology and promise only the highest quality content.
If you are curious about technology, or currently use technology, this is your discovery site!
We believe everyone should support small teams and low-cost innovation - which in turn, lowers unemployment and improves the American economy... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Jobs_Act
One of the biggest challenges both investors and consumers face is filtering through all of the technology coming on the marketplace. We will select only the highest quality startups to discuss - so you don't have to.
Please remember, we can not do this without your support.
For article contributors:
Are you a startup who spends most of your time looking for press coverage?
More than anyone, you should understand that competing against billion dollar corporations for publicity and recognition is costly and ineffective. A new device release (iPhone, etc) will crowd tech headlines for weeks - but not with CitizenTekk.
We also want to help startups collaborate and discuss emerging trends together.
With your help, we can create a high-quality, monthly discussion about the value behind your product.
We want to tell your story!
This project will fund our first three digital magazines.
-First magazine out in November.
-Regular podcast every Friday plus on-site at special events. Our first show will be at TechCrunch Disrupt SF!
-Beta website to promote magazine already under development! www.citizentekk.com
-Topics covered: TV&Media, Mobile, Gaming, Social, Shopping/eCommerce, Software, Cloud, Health, CleanTech, Aerospace (subject to expand).
Please note, we highly encourage international participation both in readership and article contributions!
SHOULD WE EXCEED OUR GOAL
Should we go well beyond our goal, we will be able to make Citizen Tekk a permanent publication! Imagine the conversation we could be having one year from now about our stable economy and the startup companies who made it happen!
