Background[edit]

Kewego was founded by Michel Meyer and Olivier Heckmann, two French entrepreneurs. They founded Multimania in 1995, which they subsequently floated on the French New Market at the Paris bourse in March 2000. It was later sold to Lycos for 220m Euros. Meyer and Heckmann then founded PulseVision in 2003, which was renamed Kewego in 2006.
