Umuntu media founder and CEO, online publishing and media expert, tech entrepreneur and passionate African. Johan conceived Umuntu Media when he was researching a family holiday to Namibia and he realised that there was a huge gap for credible, up-to-date local content. Johan developed the concept for Umuntu using his experience as a marketing and new media specialist. Since 2009 he has drawn on his considerable energy and passion to build Umuntu into the tech leader it is today.
Africa has over a billion people. But with just one registered domain per 10 000 people, it is a continent crying out for local content. We are bridging that gap, using technology to directly connect people who want to know what’s going on in their area, all day, every day.In short, Umuntu Media exists because we love Africa, we love technology and we have a passion for local content.
