About Marcus Linnepe:

Marcus Linnepe has been studying and supporting people in unusual entrepreneurial situations for more than 25 years. Over the years, he has been confronted with a wide variety of challenges as an entrepreneur and consultant. He and his team have conceptualized and implemented numerous restructurings and led corporate transactions to success. Start-ups, spin-offs, mergers, capital increases and IPOs are not new territory for us, but familiar terrain. In addition, he has solved negotiation and management issues both in family-run German SMEs and in an international environment and has coached numerous entrepreneurs and managers. His experience has shown that success essentially depends on inspiring the respective stakeholders and that a sound knowledge of methods is elementary, but not decisive. It is about "reading" negotiating partners and winning them over to the cause. In the end, it is always people who decide on the implementation of a concept or a negotiation objective. In this respect, he has closed a significant gap in the consulting world with CANEI
