“We both grew up in a region with medium-sized businesses in Rhineland-Palatinate,” says Pascal Stichler about himself and Kurosch D. Habibi. “At an early stage, we realized how difficult it is for many entrepreneurs to find a suitable successor.” Stichler got to know the other side when he studied business engineering at KIT: During several internships, he learned that there are many prospective buyers of medium-sized businesses.” The challenge is to give the businesses broader access and to provide prospective buyers with a better overview.” After conferral of his master’s degree in 2016, Pascal Stichler, together with Kurosch D.
