Kaben Ventures has been established by executives with international experience in a variety of sectors across different parts of the world. 


Our experience includes resolving threats to solvency, customer dissatisfaction, attrition, declining sales, tightening contribution margins, outdated company structures, disconnected workflows, lack of competence management, inertia, strategic fog, etc.


Since 2015, we are working with start-ups, small and medium companies, who either want to grow sales by entering South East Asian or European markets, finding strategic partners or optimizing their cost structure.


Our philosophy is to provide context-specific advice and interim management, based on a set of clear goals, agreed with our clients. 


We want to ensure that our clients benefit from a step-by-step approach with intermediate results. Thereby our clients remain in control of the project and can decide at every milestone on the further development of the respective growth or cost saving project.  


We are experienced sparring partners to management but also enjoy working shoulder to shoulder as interim managers, so avoid restricting management time while being responsible for the outcomes we produce.
