With this goal in mind, more than 600 editors, developers and data/product experts shape the world of digital news from sites in Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Hamburg and Berlin. BurdaForward has also teamed up with numerous publishing partners around Germany and is building a publisher network to exchange content, knowledge and reach. In this way, the company aims to provide its users with a comprehensive information service and to play its part in the ongoing freedom of the press and diversity of opinions in Germany.

In addition to its own portals, BurdaForward Advertising markets further digital brands such as TV Spielfilm, XING and HolidayCheck. One of the first digital marketers, the company focuses on user-friendly advertising. It also invests in innovative native advertising formats and the expansion of transaction business.

Within the print sector, BurdaForward runs the Chip magazine, special technology publications and several photo titles. In November 2018, Digito – a Germany-wide daily newspaper supplement – joined the company’s print publications, offering advice on the digital world with a circulation of more than 800,000 copies.
