Our focus: Future-proof industries.

Technological and societal changes drive business changes.
We focus on market shifts in the following future-viable industries:
  • Consumer

    The concept of the consumer changes. They used to be merely buyers of products or services. Now, they are increasingly integrated into the processes of companies, for example in product development. Their involvement drives growth.

  • IT

    The adoption of technology in­creases exponentially. Even decision processes are transformed into algorithms. Digital infra­structure, such as 5G, enables companies and service providers to establish entirely new business models.

  • Health

    There is a fundamental shift in the thinking around health, from medical repair shop to early pre­vention. This shift is accompanied by a new holistic understanding of health, encompassing food, sports, social activities and happiness.
