Already in 1983 – when consulting was not so popular as today, young entrepreneurs founded Innotiimi in Finland, and ICG (back then named Infora) in Austria. 30 years later, the two consulting teams counting 130 consultants in 12 countries, merged into a European group. After having worked for seven years in a close partnership, characterized by collective know-how development, learning, common projects and after spending a few fun nights out together, a relationship of mutual trust developed. As a result, the Innotiimi and ICG partners decided to realign the ownership structure and to integrate both companies.
Now, Innotiimi-ICG provides transnational, high-impact consulting for European customers, and the know-how of 130 experienced professionals is at the disposal of our local clients. What connects us are not only similar principles, but also the concept of »consulting with passion«, meant to boost the promise that we make to our customers as we become: »your partner in change«.
