We at Steinbeis
Steinbeis Bertaungszentrum Wirtschaftsmediation (Advisory Center for Business Mediation) is an independent company that was founded in 2004 as part of the Steinbeis Foundation.
We specialize in conflict management and mediation, internal and cross-company cooperation, as well as in the public sector and administration.
Whether companies, public organizations or specialized groups, customers develop an effective and healthy "togetherness" through us.
It is no wonder that we are one of the market leaders in mediation in Germany.
The Steinbeis Foundation
The building bricks of the Steinbeis Foundation were laid in the 19th century by the namesake and founder of the first Steinbeis Foundation, Ferdinand von Steinbeis - one of the fathers of the modern dual vocational training.
The Steinbeis Foundation took up this idea when the then Prime Minister of Baden-Württemberg Lothar Späth, Prof. Dr. Johann Löhn, appointed the first government commissioner for technology transfer in 1983. At the same time, Prof. Löhn took over the chairmanship of the Steinbeis Foundation.
