Petra helped us in structuring the key message and all relating documents for finding venture capital for a newly founded start-up in the field of green chemicals. Petra also provided us contacts and venture opportunities for our mission. We totally appreciated Petras’s very experienced, well-skilled but still hands-on way of working with us. Petra is perfectly capable of sensing what her customers really need. We really learned a lot! Thank you, Petra.

I was able to enjoy another great workshop at i2c last week. Petra Wolkenstein shared her knowledge on B2B negotiations with us. My personal highlight was a role-play we did. We formed teams of two-each person representing one of two parties- with the task to negotiate a deal. The scenario was about a scientist and a corporate that had to agree upon IP-rights so that they could bring a new product to the market. If successful, the deal would yield increased revenues to both, but they had different expectations towards the success chance of the project.

But this valuable experience of building my own business with your support, so much warmth, appreciation, inspiring feedback and priceless impulses is simply incredible. Great collaborations, projects, commissions and synergies have been created. Thank you dear team for your touching farewell words to me. I am still very touched…

Petra Wolkenstein provided us with very professional and helpful support in various phases. Starting with company coaching in the area of internationalisation through to support in the search for investors. Especially in this phase, the cooperation worked very well and Petra was able to find us high-quality and suitable investors. The network of investors extends far beyond the borders of Austria and has a very good breadth and depth. Thank you very much for your excellent, proactive support!

In Petra Wolkenstein, we have found someone who will provide us with consistent and targeted support in focusing our services and, building on this, will help us to decisively develop our presence in digital and social media. The contribution of her personal experience in dealing with these media and her corresponding expertise are a decisive factor in the expansion of our customer base. I can only warmly recommend Mrs Wolkenstein. What she develops and drives forward in the start-up scene also has great applications for us as an SME. The positive development of our company over the last 5 years of working with Mrs Wolkenstein is the best proof of this.
