We drive you towards
BETTER Business Model Innovation
#ValueCreation #Digitalization #DataDriven

Our core principles

Our core principle and passion is innovation and development of sustainable and successful business models: Creating value for users, clients and stakeholders, earning a return but also acting responsibly towards employees, clients, our social environment and nature.

We believe in empathy driven innovation and value creation by understanding not only the customer but also the ecosystem. We drive exchange of best practices and success stories by connecting corporates, startups and digital experts from different fields.

Therefore we combine the best from Design Thinking, Startup Mindset and Agile Organization and encourage innovation by transferring successful digital and better business models across industries and learning through rapid prototyping.

The platform Business Model Toolbox aims to connect expert and expert knowledge. Our goal is to provide inspiration and become a knowledge hub for for business model innovators, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and change-makers who want to design successful business model. We want to apply the force of entre- and intrapreneurship in order to support a new way of thinking and acting in business and to create a sustainable future.
