According to Managing Director, Etienne Louw, MMB Service Providers aims to increase the value and potential of broadband for millions of customers by allowing anyone - from large corporations to small businesses, and eventually individual consumers - to become online content providers to the mass market.
and Prinsloo agree that new media (mobile and broadband) is a largely uncharted territory.
"We are at the front end of pushing this technology.
Right now, everybody is experimenting with various business models for new media", says Prinsloo.
adds that one of the reasons why the Maxum Business Incubator was an attractive option for MMB
is its networks with other incubators internationally.
"It gives you exposure to young entrepreneurs and cutting edge technologies from all over the world and opens up fantastic opportunities for learning and sharing."
Not only does The Innovation Hub
a favourable platform from which to secure its future, it is also the place where their success story began.
As Blue Label members of the Hub's INNOV8 community, Louw
and Prinsloo first met at a Pub@Hub networking event in 2004.
At the time, Prinsloo shared his vision with Louw and the idea for creating MMB Service Providers was born.
Our aim is to really reach the masses and not just the few 'haves' in the country", says Louw
