MIH Print Africa feeds the Afrigator

Afrigator AcquiredToday is a pretty exciting day for me and the Afrigator team as we can finally announce something that we have been working passionately towards for the past 2 years now – that being an investment partner who can help take Afrigator to the next level with a reach of a much bigger African audience.

MIH Print Africa, a division of Naspers, have secured a majority stake in Afrigator. The exciting news is that Justin and Stii will be relocating to a much trendier Cape Town (or as some prefer to call it Silicon Cape) working from the swanky new Afrigator headquarters with our first official employee, Product Manager Lester Hein, whilst Mike and myself will still be working very closely with the Afrigator team. Expect to see lots happening over the coming months.

Charl Norman got the scoop this morning and wrote a great post over on Bandwidth Blog. Also see the Afrigator blog for the official press release.

To my team – I look forward to finally toasting to our success, in person, during my visit in late October. Congrats guys!
