Career

Jens Kunath’s drive and ambition were evident from a young age, initially channeling his energy into becoming a competitive biathlete. He attended a specialized sports boarding school for young talent and secured several national titles before retiring from professional sports due to health reasons.

In 1993, while pursuing his economics degree, Jens founded his first company, CARE Verlag. Initially focused on producing print magazines and CD-ROM publications, the company evolved into a digital publisher over time. After completing his studies, Jens joined the Kirch Group as the Head of Reach Marketing, where he played a pivotal role in digital television distribution.

Following his tenure at the Kirch Group, Jens became the Managing Director of EBE Online GmbH & Co. KG, a joint venture between Deutsche Telekom and Süddeutsche Verlag. His journey then led him to Hamburg, where he managed the search engine Dino Online (Mobilcom), later transforming it into freenet.de AG. As part of the management team, he was responsible for driving advertising revenue and contributed to the successful IPO of freenet.de AG.

Eager to return to his entrepreneurial roots, Jens co-founded orangemedia.de GmbH with Dirk Ströer, focusing on advertising space marketing. Under his leadership, orangemedia.de became a significant market player, eventually selling his shares to Ströer AG. This move laid the foundation for STRÖER SE to become Germany’s largest digital marketer.

After selling his first company, Jens took the opportunity to indulge in his passion for travel, exploring the world for several months. This period allowed him to gather fresh perspectives and ideas for his future endeavors.

Venturing into international business, Jens founded a purchasing and marketing agency in Shenzhen, China, importing affordable art and merchandising products to Germany. He successfully developed and later sold investments in Art-Outlet, Corporate Outfit, and Asia One Group, returning to his primary passion: the Internet business.

In the subsequent years, Jens supported over 50 startup companies as a business angel and investor. Since 2010, he has dedicated himself to the operational support of his agency group, orangemedia, continuously driving its growth and innovation.
