Expertise we bring

Business valuation

We specialise in business valuations for early-stage startups. At this stage, the future growth of your business is still highly uncertain, meaning special methods for valuation must be applied.

Financial planning

In the service industries and technology sector especially (platform model, SaaS model, corporate sales), we have several years of experience and provide templates for financial planning which are challenged using benchmarks.

Startup access to ecosystems and SME service providers​

For years we have been training accelerators, local agencies, universities and research institutes throughout the DACH region and Eastern Europe. We have a strong network of technology scouts. We also work closely with banks and tax advisors for medium-sized companies.
