Doka Ventures became Umdasch Group Ventures
During the last months the Umdasch Group has intensively pursued a re-branding process to establish a clear structure. Acquisitions, investments and newly founded companies are part of Umdasch Group’s growth strategy and will continue to do so. This strategy has now been given a framework aiming at establishing brand clarity as well as a sound framework for our future growth.
Doka Ventures has occupied a new place within the new structure and became Umdasch Group Ventures. This demonstrates the importance of potentially disruptive innovation and respective business development for the whole Umdasch Group.
Extension of the Mission: Innovation in Construction and Retail
One reason for this adjustment has been, that Umdasch Group Ventures is going to manage potentially disruptive innovation processes and new business models for both processes which are key to the Umdasch Group: building processes and consumer buying processes. Therefore, Umdasch Group Ventures has started to also be active in B2C and B2B consumer buying processes in which Umdasch Storemakers is playing an important role.
While Doka and Umdasch Storemakers continue to focus themselves on new innovation within and around their core business, Umdasch Group Ventures focuses on potentially disruptive innovation in the complete related process chain.
The team around CEO Jürgen Obiegli continues to follow the predetermined path with this enlarged field of competence, being supported and encouraged without reservation by the owners of the Umdasch Group.
