Senior Reporter

Damilare Dosunmu is a pan-African tech journalist and commentator. He has reported extensively on the burgeoning startup ecosystem, venture capitalism, a bit of crypto and blockchain, big tech, and the human impact of tech on the continent. 

He is currently a Senior Reporter at TechCabal, where he tells original African stories, especially the inner workings of tech and tech-enabled businesses—cultures, management, finances, vision, and some other boring stuff—and has passionately followed through to investigate and report them.  

In 2022, he was awarded Best Storyteller in the entire Big Cabal Media Group, the mother company of TechCabal and two other publications. His work has taken him across the continent and beyond, including to the UAE to cover GITEX, the world’s biggest tech show, in Dubai.  

Prior to joining TechCabal, he worked as a marketing strategist, building go-to-market campaigns for FMCGs and pharmaceuticals like Emzor; and as a communication specialist at QuickCheck and Risevest, two Nigeria-based fintech startups. 

Damilare spent six years across two institutions studying Computer Science, and now, rather than writing code and building cool stuff, he likes to tell people that his passion for writing led him to writing about other people writing code and building cool stuff instead. Damilare loves music. When he’s not listening to afro house music, EDM, or hip-hop, he’s recreationally writing about them on his intermittent substack page Tarykh’s Letter.
