Naspers Teardown: How This African Newspaper Became One Of The Largest Companies In The World – [Report]

By  |  October 23, 2018

Headquartered in South Africa, Naspers has established its presence around the world. It has proved its financial strength time and again. The portfolio bears the proof that neither international borders nor the sector divide could limit Naspers.

We were fascinated with the scale and diversity of this giant and thought of deep diving into its history, the portfolio of investments & diverse business verticals.

To our surprise, we didn’t find a single source/report that talks about Naspers’ journey and voila, here we are. We researched online, spoke to folks around and dug down into Naspers history.

The report gives insight into Naspers growth and takes the reader through the century-long journey. What started as a voice for the locals in the form of a newspaper now has operations in more than 120 countries. Naspers went on to enter the book publishing arena in the 1900’s and gradually increased its reach to the broadcast media.

A large chunk of the investments by Naspers is taken up by the technology-driven businesses and startups. From China’s Tencent, India’s Flipkart and Europe’s Delivery Hero, this global giant has invested in over 50 tech companies around the globe.


Read the complete report to understand what all has Naspers ventured into, and where it stands today.
