A few weeks ago Rafiq Phillips of MIH in South Africa and Webaddicts allowed me a chance to sneak peak a development version of the desktop social messaging Feedalizer, one which has since been released to the public and very well received. I decided to a quick Q&A with him to see how development was going and what the history of their team was.
Appfrica: What is MIH?
R: MIH focuses on Internet businesses, within the Naspers Group, in growing markets in which it has attained or hopes to attain sustainable market positions. Geographically the group is focused on the larger emerging markets with a specific focus on the BRICSA countries ( Brazil, Russia, India, China, South and sub-Saharan Africa) and the adjacent territories, which the group believes present above-average growth opportunities.
MIH’s objective is to continue sustained growth of its business with a focus on key investments and developing its technology whilst providing a quality service and maintaining a local approach.
