Franz was born when strategy consultants, data-scientists and lobbyists met to reshape data-intensive industries in Europe.

Current trends are more than ever challenging the established order. The new paradigm is paradox, inspiring companies to be ever more creative and bold in their strategic choices. A new era is opening, it is digital and it requires new environmental, economic and social answers.
