Every end marks a new beginning
Toggle's inception in 2019 marked a turning point in the landscape of tech journalism in Bangladesh. With a visionary team at its helm, the magazine was born out of a passion for technology and a desire to share the latest trends, gadgets, and breakthroughs with its readers. From day one, Toggle became synonymous with cutting-edge reporting, engaging features, and a commitment to delivering unbiased, high-quality content.
Over the years, Toggle's pages were graced with insightful interviews with industry leaders, in-depth analyses of emerging technologies, and thought-provoking opinion pieces that sparked countless discussions. Its writers, editors, and contributors poured their hearts and souls into each issue, aiming to inform, entertain, and inspire the tech-savvy audience that eagerly awaited the magazine's arrival on their doorstep every Friday.
As Toggle garnered a loyal following, it also played a vital role in fostering the startup ecosystem in Bangladesh. The magazine became a platform for young entrepreneurs to showcase their ventures, share their success stories, and shed light on the challenges they faced. It instilled hope in aspiring business minds and demonstrated that innovation knows no bounds, irrespective of the size of a country or its resources.
But, in the ever-changing media landscape, only one saying stands truer than anything else—change is the only constant. Following the suite of many of our predecessors, Toggle's journey in print, too, must come to an end. Today, with a mix of emotions, we announce that this issue is the last printed edition of Toggle.
However, this farewell does not mark the end of an era; rather, it signals the dawn of a new chapter in the annals of technology journalism. Starting next week, the stories that have made Toggle so beloved will find a new home online under the title of 'Tech & Startup'. As the publication rebrands, it promises to continue its legacy of excellence, exploring the realms of technology and startup culture, not only in Bangladesh but also on a global scale.
