maconda - the business model experts

When it comes to analysis, no one beats us. When it comes to implementation, we get everyone on board.

For more than 20 years, we have been supporting companies in acquisitions, strategic development or restructuring. Success is always based on what we call ‘maconda competence’: We understand your business model!

When it comes to commercial due diligence (CDD), we are among the most experienced management consultancies in the German-speaking countries, especially in Germany and Switzerland. We also have a great deal of experience in our neighbouring countries of the Netherlands, Belgium, and Poland. Our analyses are as fast as they are precise and insightful: this is how we give you the decisive edge.

We are also at your side when it comes to the development, optimisation and fundamental redesign of business models. Whether strategic consulting or operational support: we are not about trendy buzzwords, we are all about your business.

About us

Performance management thumbnail

Performance management

Secure value

When a company is under strategic or financial pressure, an outside perspective helps. But it needs to be more than that, it needs to be energetic and, above all, bringing fast support in tackling your pain points. As business model experts with long experience in restructuring, we are always at your side.

Our restructuring concepts deliver more than large Excel spreadsheets. We link the pure numbers with a sound qualitative market analysis that works with the business model – thus maconda offers more than the typical restructuring consultants who often fixate on figures or graphs. We will lay the foundation for the sustainable restructuring of your business.

Search value

As specialists in commercial due diligence, we understand the markets and their drivers. That is our core competence. Our approach not only convinces investors, especially private equity companies and family offices, we also enjoy an excellent reputation among financing banks and debt funds.

With this knowledge and our many years of experience, we also provide conceptual advice on Buy & Build. We prepare M&A transactions, develop promising equity stories and search for exciting target companies – always on the basis of our mature methodology, which we have refined over the years.

Increase value

Together, we start into the future. As specialists in the SME sector, we support our clients through their growth projects – be it organically or through buy & build. We also provide support during the transformation and market entry into new business areas or countries. In doing so, you profit from our industry knowledge and many years of experience across the range of corporate development phases. We are happy to pass on our valuable knowledge from numerous company and market analyses because as a partner at eye level, we value close and trusting cooperation.

Ability comes from knowledge

Whether we advise on M&A processes, accompany market entries or improve performance, it is all done on the basis of the comprehensive maconda competence that we understand, develop and establish business models. Our deep pool of expertise comprises 800 projects and more than 450 transaction-related mandates. This creates the professional basis to find pragmatic solutions even for the most challenging projects and difficult corporate phases using a rapid and precise analysis. Our assessments are as well-founded as they are accurate. In this sense, we see ourselves as a highly competent partner for companies, investors, and financiers.


We are real specialists for CDDs and conceptual work around M&A. We are not only interested in the process, but we also care about the content and the specific industry of our clients. This allows us to handle complex issues. We are practised in getting quickly to the key of a business model and really understanding it. Our experience with medium-sized businesses is solution-orientated and those solutions are executed with real enthusiasm and dedication – that’s what sets us apart.”
