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 Chukwuemeka Onyebuchi, the founder of Timsmek Global Publishers, in January 2014, moved to Port Harcourt for his tertiary education at the 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 coursemates of his 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 for an online publishing company that can render all the publishing services came to him. The idea is to make educational resources fully digital and without stealing the works from the authors. Learning is going digital and will never reverse to the old ways.
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.
