Spacegrow Media (Pty) Ltd. was registered in 2003, as a shelf company, and began operating in 2009. The company was started when the two directors, Johan and Morne, noticed that many media agencies were disjointed. They decided to follow the European trend and create an agency that integrated Media, Creative and PR into one company without the overhang of large, traditional agencies. Their philosophy is “you cannot turn the Titanic into a speedboat” and that is why they decided to build Space – their very own “speedboat” – from the ground up.
The name originated from the concept of space and that the agency would, literally, buy space as well as create a space whereby clients can directly interact with consumers. From a more scientific point of view, Johan explains that, in space, time is seen as a four dimensional unit and that they too have four main principles – client, audience, channel and moment.
