We are a berlin-based consultancy. We are here to help you with business development, strategy and marketing. We particularly care about the sustainable use and commercialisation of biodiversity. We have a great interest in under-utilised species, novel foods, and everything that combines social, ecological and economical sustainability. We embrace people and companies who make a difference to conventional business models through their business philosophy.

Successful marketing is what intrigues me; a good cause even more so. Professional marketing and socially and ecologically conscious business models are not contradictory – quite the contrary.

On these pages, I would like to get you involved with good and sustainable business models, especially those, that focus on the creation of sustainable livelihoods for producers in developing countries. I’m particularly interested in everything that has to do with products from biodiversity, underutilised species and neglected crops and novel foods that can be created out of that. Get inspiration, new ideas for your own projects, learn about best practices and good examples and get to know other companies, international organizations or initatives.

Curiosity, passion, and a certain idealism are what motivates me. With more than 13 years of experience in industry, commerce and fast moving consumer goods I’m now focusing on international development cooperation. Market-based approaches for development, sustainable livelihoods, inclusive business and aid-for-trade are just some of the areas that I focus on with Koolman Consulting.
