Gruner+Jahr (G+J), the publishing division of European media conglomerate Bertelsmann SE & Co, is making substantial investments in digital firm Networkplay Media. The newly injected funds are to aid product development, innovations and strategic acquisitions.

Dr Joakim Naegele, Chairman, G+J India Board said, “India is the fastest growing market in our G+J portfolio. With this step, we show our dedication for the Indian market and belief in the digital space.”
