Dr. Kai-Henrik Barth 

Partner and Shareholder

For more than 20 years I have driven digital change and transformation both in large corporate structures (Sony, Fujifilm) as well as my own companies. I´m seeking out digital, disruptive business models and innovative ways of doing business for traditional companies. Responding to the accelerated change by intelligent investments and M&A is the obvious consequence to me. Entrepreneurial I accompanied startups, investor groups and venture capitalists and organized management teams and their strategic processes.
