COMPANY PRESENTATION

Before a business is set up, entrepreneurs and companies should have a well defined plan on how to brand and promote their products. Brand consideration has always been in people’s minds before taking a purchase decision. Most of the brands that we know are foreign and there is a need to promote local and regional brands so that they become on top of the mind.

Media Five Ltd, incorporated in June 2017, assists companies into branding themselves in more creative ways and uses new techniques and technologies of branding so that their company names and brands stay on top of the minds of their clients. 

Tanuja Heeroo, the director of Media Five Ltd, along with her team was inspired by the fact that nowadays brand name and equity play a much bigger role in a company’s success than its own tangible assets. Every company has a soul and Media Five Ltd provide the energy to bring it to life. If the company is the body, its brand name is its soul.

Media Five Ltd, therefore, uses new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Additive Manufacturing, e-commerce among others to make it more affordable and easy for companies to reach out to their clients.

They are also a subsidiary of Big 5 Holdings Ltd, which has interests in various other industries such as Food and Beverage, Sugar and Sugar Technology, Printing and Printing Technology, Fire and Hydro, Real Estate, consultancy and other services in and out of Mauritius.
