KiVVON Media GmbH

The roots and inspiration of KiVVON can be traced back to 2007, when Josh was still running the platform for drivers and passengers known as Mitfahrzentrale.de. During this time, he lived in Berlin and at the same time initiated a platform for citizen journalism in the capital. At a time when blogs were on the rise, it was a challenge to bring many Berliners together on a single platform, as Josh had envisioned. Instead, he soon gathered several hundred bloggers and marketed them individually to advertisers.

In 2011, he launched an online marketplace that enabled bloggers to get in touch with advertisers. This platform expanded to over 12,000 blogs and quickly became profitable. A few years later, this business model gave rise to the company Seeding Alliance GmbH, through which Josh marketed native advertising formats via a self-developed technology for digital publishing publications by media professionals, mainly publishers. The company quickly became profitable and achieved an eight-figure turnover within a few years.

The company has been part of the Ströer Group since 2017. Two years after the majority takeover by Ströer, Josh stepped away from the operational business to devote himself to new entrepreneurial ideas. The experience he gained, his technological competence in the platform business and his marketing expertise ultimately led him back to his original vision: to give journalism a platform. Josh sees the platformization of journalism and high-quality content – a cooperative and technological alliance of many media creators – as the greatest opportunity to strengthen journalism and great content, expand reach and generate revenue.
