Project Flow

Initial Conversation

At the beginning we will get to know each other in an initial conversation. We define the framework conditions and your wishes for the project.

Team creation

Based on the agreements from the initial meeting, we will find the right team for you. This usually consists of 3-4 consultants.


Depending on our time and personnel expenditure, we will make you an individual offer. Due to our non-profit concept, our prices are mostly below those of conventional consultancies.

Project work

This is the busy phase! From now on our team will give everything to make you happy! We are in contact with you and inform you about our progress.

Final Presentation

Last but not least, we present our results to you and look forward to your feedback. 

Who are our Customers?


Every company started small at some point. Yours can benefit from our young, innovative team of students from Karlshochschule, who incorporate the latest knowledge. So even a startup without a large budget can benefit from our management consultancy.


Small and medium-sized companies make an important contribution to the German economy. The associated strong ability to innovate differentiates them from large companies in many ways.  Nevertheless, medium-sized companies are also facing central challenges that we can help with.


Associations and NGOs are an important factor in modern civil societies. We look forward to orders and collaborations here too!
