Startup Factory China awarded as TOP CONSULTANT 2018

June 2018

Startup Factory China is one of the best SME consultants in Germany – this has been determined by the consultant contest TOP CONSULTANT. As part of the official award ceremony at the 5th German SME Summit in Ludwigsburg on June 29, Germany’s former Federal President Christian Wulff congratulated managing director Christian Haug on this success.

We thank our customer family for their trust that is reflected in the survey results. The award is a confirmation that we are a competent and trustworthy partner for the market entry into China. At the same time, it is a motivation and obligation to serve our customers even better in the future.


Basis of the award is a scientifically sound survey of our customers. The results of this customer survey are then evaluated together with other company data. The TOP CONSULTANT seal is awarded only to companies that achieve a very good or good result. Professionalism, competence and, of course, satisfied customers – these are the central test criteria of the consultant contest TOP CONSULTANT.

At the award ceremony and celebration with over 1,000 participants in Ludwigsburg, our team was represented by Jenny Ren, Selina Shi and Christian Haug. The Prime Minister of Baden-Wurttemberg, Winfried Kretschmann, and the mentor of TOP CONSULTANTs, former German President Christian Wulff, emphasized on the importance of German SMEs for innovation, jobs and economic growth in Germany.


A SME and customer-oriented consultant service is the key criteria for the award with the quality seal TOP CONSULTANT. The contest target group organized by compamedia since 2010 consists largely of management, IT and HR consultants. These companies face the investigation under the scientific leadership of the contest: Prof. Dr. med. Dietmar Fink, Professor of Management Consulting at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences, and Bianka Knoblach. Both lead the Scientific Society for Management and Consulting (WGMB) in Bonn. Mentor of TOP CONSULTANT is Germany’s former Federal President Christian Wulff. Media partner is the manager magazin.
