Why Core & Company?

My experience in building an international start-up exposed me to the potential of agile strategies and entrepreneurial problem-solving. CORE & COMPANY’s distinct emphasis on leveraging unconventional strategic thinking and innovative methodologies attracted me to the potential of utilising the entrepreneurial spirit in large corporations. The customer-centricity and continuous co-creation present in start-ups have the potential to enable new sources of growth when applied to established market players. CORE & COMPANY’s disruptive attitude to consulting attracted me to join the team’s efforts to create this unique value for clients.
