Axel Springer is a media and technology company and active in more than 40 countries. By providing information across its diverse media brands (among others BILD, WELT, BUSINESS INSIDER, POLITICO Europe) and classifieds portals (StepStone Group and AVIV Group) Axel Springer SE empowers people to make free decisions for their lives. Today, the transformation from a traditional print media company to Europe’s leading digital publisher has been successfully accomplished. The next goal has been identified: Axel Springer wants to become global market leader in digital content and digital classifieds through accelerated growth.
In the tradition of its founder, who fostered journalistic and technological innovations in his time, Axel Springer SE is breaking new ground while remaining true to itself. The company is with great pace pursuing the objective of building up a fast-growing and profitable digital portfolio and to establish journalism as a successful business model also in the digital world. Along with the transformation of its established strong media brands, its own new developments and strategically-oriented acquisitions of web companies, the networking with the current generation of digital founders is one of the building blocks of the company’s digitization strategy.
The company is headquartered in Berlin and employs more than 16,000 people worldwide.
