South Africa’s Business-to-Business Publisher Celebrates 20 Years

Bizcommunity, which is at the forefront of business-to-business publishing in South Africa, is celebrating its twentieth year.  The very first Bizcommunity newsletters were dispatched on Monday, 20 August 2001.   The vision of its co-founders, Andre Rademan and Ken van Ginkel, was to unite hubs of like-minded people according to their interests, using content as the tool for connection.  The Bizcommunity website launched into cyberspace under the iconic red dot-and-line logo, representing the nuclei of interconnected business communities.

After an initial focus on showcasing the advertising, marketing, and media sectors, Bizcommunity broadened its scope from 2007 onwards to include newsletters and portals catering to audiences across 19 industries. Its online platform has grown from strength to strength, becoming an indispensable daily resource for business-to-business news from its gateway in South Africa to pan-African and global audiences. Over the course of two decades of growth, the brand has been built on diverse and consultative principles and prides itself on growing teams and communities from the ground up.

Reflecting on the past 20 years, CEO and co-founder, Andre Rademan, said he was deeply grateful for the dedication of Bizcommunity team members, many of whom have devoted large chunks of their career paths to upholding the company’s visions of making a difference in the world! He remarked that “each and every person that has come through our doors has put their stamp on the Biz brand and contributed to us having a lot of fun along the way.”  Expressing how he feels about the present state of the company, he said that “the Bizcommunity team is immensely grateful to the many clients, partners, industry stakeholders and users who have supported the Biz journey to this point.”

Indeed, representing the most dynamic and diverse spectrum of South African organizations with a snapshot of economic excellence from the region continues to be a daily undertaking for the online publisher.  Its reputation as an industry noticeboard has launched the careers of hundreds of thousands of job seekers via the Biz recruitment platforms and continues to contribute to job creation and youth empowerment in the region.

Speaking about the Bizcommunity brand, CCO Terry Levin commented: “In our 20th year, as the world and especially Africa, recovers and recalibrates from the pandemic, the symbol of the Bizcommunity mark – uniting and connecting business communities – resonates with as much relevance as it did in the fallout of the Y2K dot-bomb era in which it was designed.”  In a world of fake news and agendas, Bizcommunity said it was proud of its contribution to the South African media, among those who daily uphold respected standards of journalistic excellence and truth.
