Experts

The growth programme enables you to exchange views with experienced entrepreneurs and domain experts.

As part of the qualification process, we put together a team of experts specifically suited to your industry and position. The interdisciplinary team analyses and evaluates your growth potential, and identifies strengths as well as the need for action. This gives you a unique opportunity to have your growth plans reviewed and analysed by independent outsiders with differing points of view, enabling the plans to be supplemented if necessary.

Our range of events also promotes the intensive exchange of practical experiences.
