We offer all required services for the opening of dependent/independent subsidiaries, the foundation, acquisition or shareholding in companies. We also support you in finding cooperation partners, new customers or suppliers, in the development of distribution channels and investment opportunities.

The future of your company starts with the right strategy!
Because: “If a man does not know to what port he is steering, no wind is favourable to him!” (Seneca)

 

As corporate developer, we help you to find the best “port”. We support you in developing ideas, with future and strategic development, provide you with sound planning and inspire with innovative, partially unusual but efficient approaches, so you can stand out from the crowd! We uncover connections for you and help to make the right decisions for your company. Our aim is to make your company efficient and future-proof and ensure your long-term corporate development.

 

The THINK Group reliably prepares companies and entrepreneurs for market changes and equips them for an efficient and long-term future. Each process starts with questions and problem definitions and ends – together with THINK – with individual and results-oriented answers and solutions and the realisation of your corporate visions.

 

Do you need financing? We will develop a comprehensive and at the same time sustainable financing concept together, which is individually tailored to the needs of your company.

 

 

Whether you want to lay foundations, purchase new machines, implement construction plans, bridge over weak market conditions, reorder your finances or expand – we support you with your financing plans.

To implement this, we cooperate with numerous banks and support you – also during negotiations with your house bank – until procurement of funds has been successful.

For your company to be successful in future as well, it is important to fully understand the here and now and detect changes early. Nothing is more suitable for this purpose than figures!

Time for new approaches? Take these with us!

 

Change, growth, opening up new markets, acquisition or sale of companies, attracting new partners or shares, all of this leads to new approaches. We would love to support you in taking these steps, strategically and operationally. We will further expand your lines of business, processes and resources together with you, or realign these – always with best possible approaches and individual solutions. We will never lose sight of the different framework parameters and market changes.

Do you have a promising business idea? Excellent! Your visions become a successful reality with us!

 

As experts of corporate development, we know the number of initial difficulties. It is important to handle business, organisational and personal topics and aspects in the right way. We have the required contacts and networks to cover all facets with regard to your foundation and to get you started successfully.

We will also be happy to already assist you in firming up your start-up project. We create business plans and foundation concepts – also for presentation at banks and funding establishments – which are precisely tailored to you and your plans. We will also support you with regard to the procurement of funds. From firming up to realisation of your project and beyond that, we are the perfect point of contact!

 

Every crisis holds great opportunities! It is important to adapt to new conditions. We help you to recognise crises and opportunities equally.

 

Based on an in-depth analysis of the causes and circumstances, we work out a suitable restructuring concept with you to guide you out of this phase with renewed strength – up to a successful turn-around. Our restructuring concepts support you in all phases of reorientation. We start with working out a viable future model, negotiations with banks and investors and support you in implementing strategic, operative and fiscal remediation measures. We help investors, banks, suppliers, customers, but most of all yourself to regain trust in your company.

 

Our services also include coaching during all phases of the restructuring process. We will show you openly and clearly where the pitfalls and difficulties are. If a continuation no longer seems reasonable in our view, we will also support you with regard to further processing. We also create restructuring plans and reports (according to IDW S6 standard) as well as continuance prognoses on request and as required by financing partners.

 

We as corporate developers place a special focus on early recognition of crises. According to the motto “Avoiding crises instead of managing them”, we will be pleased to subject your company to a fitness check to be able to detect possible sources of danger early!

 

It is lonely at the top! We are there for you and you can count on us as sparring partner!

 

When leading your company you do not have to go it alone. We help with constructive discussions, information and impulses, finding and addressing new perspectives and solutions.
