Mediahuis Marketplaces

Mediahuis Marketplaces drives diversification of our news business. It is our mission to be the number one in quality leads by attracting the right consumers with unique content. We do this by accelerating challengers, offering them a blueprint to optimize the consumer experience and super-serve professional sellers. We help our challengers drive depth penetration by supporting them with M&A expertise and capital to scale and move into adjacencies. We bet on the future by participating in innovative start-ups and scale-ups.
Get in touch

We are a family of 17 brands, in 6 different countries and a dedicated team of 245.  Thanks to cutting-edge technology, user-friendliness and valuable features, our marketplaces occupy strong positions in the fields of real estate, recruitment and automotive. Our next step is to enter personal finance comparison.
We have a strong position in the recruitment market with Jobat in Belgium and NIjobfinder in Northern Ireland as well as Jobfinder in Luxemburg. Our flagship Zimmo and its activities Medianot, Zabun en Immoproxio thrive on the real estate market in Belgium, accompanied by Wortimmo in Luxemburg. We hold A-positions in the Dutch and Irish car marketplaces with Gaspedaal, Autotrack, AutoWereld, CarsIreland, Carzone and Cartell and operate the rising star in Luxemburg. With Switcher, we took our first steps into the Irish online comparison market.


Targeting fast-growing, technology driven scale-ups and start-ups

Occupying strong positions in both the real estate- and recruitment market ourselves, we aim to use our deep industry knowledge and long time expertise to team up with entrepreneurs aspiring to disrupt these markets. We go further than a typical single-phase fund and aim to employ a multi-stage strategy starting from late seed. We want to stay in it for the long-run and grow the company along the way. Our goal is to spur innovative solutions in proptech and rectech and are therefore encouraging entrepreneurs in this space to get in touch and discuss the ideal partnership.

Recruitment Technology

Recruitment Technology is revolutionizing the recruitment process, from more efficiently distributing vacancies, to supporting better matching, to automating many of the time and resource-consuming manual tasks. We believe that investing in recruitment technology will enable businesses to recruit the best fitting candidates faster, easier and less costly.

Property Technology

Proptech is accelerating the real estate market in the recent years. We specifically see a bright future for companies focusing to shift property data into knowledge and insights. We invest in companies that drive transactions, enrich financial solutions, collaborate to meet ESG criteria and enabling consumers and businesses to make better decisions through the use of data.

We offer a natural home with strong values and support to accelerate your development.


One of our key values is mutual ambition and trust. Therefore, we are striving for reliable and honorable partnerships.


We are a multi-stage partner, once we invest, we team up to achieve your growth to market leadership.

We aim to be the lead investor and acquire a board-seat. This allows us to be devoted and engaged partners also giving you access to the knowledge and resources at Mediahuis’ disposal but also supporting you in expanding internationally, developing and scaling the team or whatever challenges might arise in your journey.
