Our history

In 2003, Sven Lubek founded Covus. His vision: leading the market of automatic digital lead generation! Coming from leading management positions of some of the largest Internet companies in Europe, Sven has become an expert in the areas of digital commerce, search engine optimization and online marketing. With this background, he already knew about the big influence of a high-level domain-portfolio, which became a focus of Covus. Within the next years, Covus built one of the largest domain portfolios in Germany, now including more than 50,000 individual domains.
Based on these fundamentals, the Covus Group began to build companies with a strong focus on high quality lead generation. The number of employees grew quickly and our ventures began to cover their markets.

The digital marketplace browsergames.de, became one of the fastest growing ventures in the Covus-Portfolio. Through efficient and smart search engine optimization, the portal quickly had millions of visitors and became the largest browser games portal in Europe with subsidiaries in France, Spain, Poland, Great Britain and the USA. In June 2011, ProSiebenSat.1 Group became part of the venture and the strong growth of browsergames.de lead to a full sale of Browsergames.de to the ProSiebenSat.1 Group. This created a close working relationship between the two companies and led to numerous collaborations.

Today, the Covus Group is running 10 companies and employs about 160 people. In our headquarter in Berlin and offices in San Francisco and Hamburg, we are constantly working on new ideas and companies, always focusing what we do best:
