Dedicated to What's Next

Who We Are

The ambitious, the overachievers and the followers. These are the clients we are working for. They’re all very different and extremely challenging. And we love to support them in projects and become their trusted sparring partner over the long term.

Consulting

We’ve helped more than 300 corporate clients in more than 40 countries carry out more than 4,000 successful What’s Next projects as architects and construction managers. Our expertise lies in the areas of strategy, corporate development, technology, business set-up and execution.

Corporate Finance

A total transaction volume of more than USD 6 billion, 400 due diligences, 180 M&A deals and 16 IPOs give you an idea of our corporate finance business. With a slight preference for the USD 50 million target, our M&A business originates mainly from the portfolios of the corporate and private equity clients we serve with our full-service DNA. It includes everything from special situations to trade sales on the buy and sell side and IPOs in the range of USD 500 million to USD 1 billion.

Capital

Little by little over the years we have invested our skills (“Skill for Equity”) and some money (our own and our clients’) into promising companies. They range from startups to listed conglomerates. We also set up specialized teams for the specific requirements in Germany, Hong Kong and China. Our smallest engagements are around USD 50k and our biggest to date peaked at USD 15 million.

Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben

Classical music is something very special. From chamber music to an oratorio, from a sonata to a beautiful symphony – music enrichens our lives in a very essential way.

That’s why DSM supports our highly skilled offspring in the long term. They are doing this for more than 40 years now and they support their stipendiaries and awardees individually regarding to age and situation. DSM helps our musicians with long-term studentships or financial support. They are also organizing concerts or tours in Germany, Europe or America to give them stage experience. And DSM even provides instruments for the best of their students.

Compared to other supporting charities which have a capital based program, the Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben has to attract funding for their program yearly. That’s why they depend on donations.
