Karim Barkawi in an interview with “Gründerszene” magazine
Barkawi is more than just a consulting company – it is an incubator for start-ups. Six different companies have been founded within Barkawi Group in recent years, most of them with former Barkawi consultants at the helm.
If you’ve spent a few years in the consulting industry, recognize a gap in the market and can present a convincing business plan for filling it, your chances of becoming one of those founders are good.
Barkawi Group CEO Karim Barkawi says: “We only back initiatives that our expertise enables us to evaluate because we are active in the segments and have a good overview of the market and competition. We nurture a strong basis of trust between all of the people involved, because ultimately the founders themselves are responsible for the young company’s success. We offer financing, human resources, access to our international network of clients and the use of our offices around the world.”
In an interview with the online portal “Gründerszene”, Karim Barkawi talks in detail about his work as a founder and backer of start-ups. Georg Räth posed the questions.
