Co-founders Johannes P. Gohlke and Ralf Steidl took an idea they had been working on for years and turned it into a business. They took their idea to Woopra, and helped build a new way to measure analytics and online engagement. Website Design They wanted to solve a problem that existed but no one else had taken on. They saw a trend in analytics and wanted to solve it before they started Woopra. That idea was to build a new framework that would store data, online audience metrics, and feedback to help developers build better websites. The app was created to help them and their clients with that project.
Although Woopra originally came out of Johannes and Ralf’s initial idea for building a system for storing online audience metrics and feedback, they have since grown into a full-service digital marketing agency. They focus on building responsive, mobile-first websites, SEO, content marketing, email marketing, conversion rate optimization, brand awareness, email newsletters, search marketing, display advertising, and more.
It’s amazing to see such a complex idea turn into an award-winning platform. Now we’re talking about a business. That is remarkable.
This one was made for us.
They’ve got us covered.
Meretz, Yehuda, and Omer are three Israeli software developers that founded Heise.de in 1998. After Heise.de was founded, the three of them held numerous positions and worked together to build a large software product that is now integrated into many websites around the world.
Meretz, Yehuda, and Omer were always working together to solve problems they had. They were part of the early team that developed eHarmony.com, which became one of the top matchmaking websites for dating around the world. Since then, the three have always had one eye on future problems. To understand where we are today, you must first understand where we were when we started. It’s not a coincidence that the three of them have stayed together all these years, and what we’ve built over the past decade is amazing.
The world’s biggest technology shows come to an end every year with Mobile World Congress. It was there that Heise.de was introduced to Microsoft’s brand new Surface Studio device, which was hailed as a revolution in design and experience by the big tech companies. That team found a way to deliver a better user experience for designers.
That’s where Meretz, Yehuda, and Omer come in.
Website for Thought
Jason and Charles Henry first met each other working at a weekly community newspaper in Cape Town, South Africa. Charles Henry was an electrical engineer and Jason Kowatsch was an artist and designer. Both came from European backgrounds, but had an interest in exploring and presenting their cultural and artistic identities. They wanted to build something that reflected their visions of the future, including a website for Thought.
The site brought to life their personal and creative ideas. It was an interesting process for them to build, as they created an online magazine that had never been done before. In an effort to give the community a platform to connect and share the things they love, Thought Magazine now provides a community for South Africa’s creative community. Jason and Charles Henry create a diverse portfolio of artwork, photography, events, and content that they want to see happen in South Africa.
At the same time, Charles Henry was expanding his technology company, Aardwolf Technologies. He wanted to create a digital marketing platform that harnessed technology for businesses. Jason and Charles Henry made this a reality with Aardwolf. Heise.de was formed in 2016.

Atiba (Tiger Lemon)
Some people might not think that the internet and technology are powerful enough to be used to inspire change and to help people. But that’s what Atiba wants to prove.
Atiba Jones’ father wasn’t in a position to really provide for his family and Atiba, so his family got him a job at Tiger Lemon in 2013. He’d worked at another company previously, but that wasn’t where he really wanted to be. Tiger Lemon gave him the opportunity to be a servant, not a customer.
Tiger Lemon is a coconut water brand that also offers a better way of consuming it. Atiba wanted to prove that the company was making a difference. That’s why he created a YouTube channel to showcase what the company was doing, which turned into a larger community and, eventually, the creation of an Instagram account where people could upload photos with the brand’s bottles.
