Two months ago, I stumbled upon a post here radar.techcabal.com/t/i-need-a-content-platform-for-vod-anyone/3757/6 as I was personally looking for information on the path to take in bringing an idea I have had for over a year to life. Fortunately, I noticed a particular guy giving out comprehensive contribution on the topic being discussed and in-between the lines, I read a line giving me the strong feeling that this might just be the guy I have been looking for!
I sent him a message immediately and we exchanged contacts. We got in touch that same evening and after our usual introductions, we went straight to discussing my idea and how his product can be of value to me. He was working on a platform that can enable you build a VoD platform without any programming skills called Vindie.
John Eke and I went straight to work on a collaborative scale and for 2 straight months, we spoke every day, polishing and shaping the vision to life. We are both co-founders with me taking up the CEO position in-charge of getting the content rights from filmmakers as well as other management duties and him the CTO taking care of the simple and unique design of the platform as well as other tech related issues. Today, we are more than proud that Hubrif is alive for its open beta phase!
I hold this portal in high esteem and without it, I might probably have not gotten to bring this idea to life now. Radar brought two humans together who have similar passion and today, we are not just co-founders of a tech startup but also best of friends.
The journey started here and we wanted to make sure we break the news here first. Please feel free to visit Africa’s first fully dedicated platform showcasing African short films www.hubrif.com.
We look forward to any comments or feedback you might have.
