OUR 5 CORE BELIEFS

Software eats the world

We fully agree with Marc Andreessen’s renowned quote, “Software is eating the world”, and have adopted this as one of our core beliefs – it is key to understand & utilize technology across all value chains and business models no matter the size of the organization.

Being adaptable becomes crucial

The dynamics of change are constantly increasing (necessary prerequisites, general conditions) thus not only understanding these changes but also successfully adapting to them becomes crucial.

Execution excellence is the foundation

The main challenge in Europe is not the lack of state-of-the-art technologies & new digital business models, it’s applying and executing them to address a problem and face competition, globally.

Understand & appreciate creating in ecosystems

Modern roles of suppliers, partners, and competitors are more complex and convoluted with ecosystem models that are constantly evolving. Not only understanding the underlying mechanics but also being an active member in any relevant ecosystem becomes mandatory.

It’s all about the right people

Due to the power & scalability of technology and digital business models, even small teams have become increasingly a decisive factor. Finding, assessing, winning, developing & retaining the right people is more important than ever.

Our Purpose

Create value

We see ourselves as entrepreneurs, solvers and creators at heart, focused on fast and successful execution, measurable results and a deep understanding of value creation.

Make a difference

Our mission is simple - make a difference across Europe by building sustainable, technology - driven business models in a constantly evolving world.

Do bold moves

Our culture requires a strong willingness to go beyond borders and embraces being open to different opinions. We value the importance of making bold moves and the need to adjust quickly to changing environments.

Our expertise

Mastering challenges & opportunities (our beliefs) requires a broad range of skills, diverse teams of driven people and a never-ending flow of new ideas and input.
