The way to reach the top - with

and an efficient network
The way to reach the top - with many years of experience and an efficient network


For 30 years I have been accompanying technical and scientific teams on the way to the peak of their creativity. Complex products only become real innovations when they have been successfully brought to market. The process is like a rope team on the way to the summit, so I see myself as a "mountain guide in business" who leads his team calmly, trustingly, with a lot of experience and perseverance to the goal.

Dr. René Lenggenhager, Managing Director


Like a mountain tour, the path of innovation to a marketable product leads over difficult passages that are overcome with many years of experience, creativity and a network of specialists.


True to the motto: The right person in the right place at the right time - we know how.
