MIH Print Africa Acquires A Stake In Afrigator.com

I’m pretty chuffed to announce today after nearly a year of discussions and negotiations that MIH Print Africa, a division of Naspers, has successfully acquired a stake in Afrigator.com, one of my projects.

Charl broke the story minutes ago, and the details are at the Afrigator blog, as always, but the highlights you should know are that Justin and Stii are relocating to Cape Town to work in our new offices, Lester has joined the team as employee no. 1 (welcome bro!), and that you can expect even more exciting changes and developments on the site in the near future.

I want to say a personal thank you to Justin, Stii and Mark for being an awesome team to work with, the MIH guys for having faith in our product and to you all of you for helping make Afrigator a compelling platform to play with!

  • Congrats Mike! So freaking awesome to see startups in SA being bought / invested into.

    Looking forward to seeing where Afrigator will be heading in the coming months!

  • Chris Rawlinson

    Congrats Mike and wish you guys all the best for the future mate

  • Mr. Stopforth! All is now revealed. You weren’t zizzing under that copy of Maverick after all. You were probing deeply, the inside secrets on mergers, acquisitions and take-overs.

    I’ll warn Google and the JSE that the sleeping giant has awakened

    Will the CEO be flying biz class to Slaapstad to chivvy up the troops, d’ya think? ;-)

    Mazeltov and well-deserved.

What Clients Say...

Mike did a fantastic job entertaining our delegates at our annual conference. Our group is made up of internet entrepreneurs from all over the continent who are already doing a lot on social media. Mike did a great job of communicating the point that it is the message that matters and not the medium. I would have no problem recommending him.

I saw Mike speak at One Africa Media 1013 group conference.

Mike’s keen interest in understanding our market, combined with his enthusiasm for his areas of expertise, made for an engaging, entertaining and highly relevant presentation. His energy was positively infectious and his talk received huge compliments from our audience. Mike was an asset to our event and an absolute pleasure to work with.

I saw Mike speak at Property Keystone - Own Tomorrow.

I watched Mike speak at an IMCConference on social media for business. Mike is an absolute pleasure to watch and listen to, his energy is addictive and he has the experience to back up his success. I’d happily attend another event to see Mike speak again.

I saw Mike speak at IMCC.
