Our rapidly growing portfolio of titles and communities reaches millions of readers and viewers with engaging content. With millions of videos watched per month Dumpert is the largest video website in the Netherlands. Well, behind YouTube, off course, but YouTube doesn't have a secret soundboard in its mobile app. Upcoming gives you the best and most popular content on the internet at this moment, using smart algorithms to detect pieces with potential to go viral. Autobahn delves into the world of cars and Das Kapital finds fascinating new ways to report on financial and economic news.
