Young consultants take a novel approach to chart creation

Darmstadt/Berlin, March 1, 2005

In March, think-cell started supporting all student consultants organized in the Bundesverband Deutscher Studentischer Unternehmensberatungen e. V. (Confederation of German Junior Enterprises, BDSU) by providing them cutting-edge technologies for the creation of business presentations. As part of a broad sponsorship think-cell offers its presentation software product think-cell chart to all BDSU members for free.

" think-cell chart is being used by thousands of strategy consultants world-wide providing a very efficient way of creating sophisticated business charts.", explains Markus Hannebauer, think-cell's CEO. "With our sponsorship we offer aspiring professionals the opportunity to get to know this new market standard and its benefits in their own projects."

Both partners harmonize perfectly in this sponsorship: think-cell knows the best practices of leading consulting firms and offers a perfectly adapted software product. The BDSU on the other side offers a broad national and international network with its 2000 members, alumni and partners.

"The use of think-cell chart offers us a time-saving alternative to the cumbersome manual elaboration of our project results. Besides, this software is already very popular with a vast number of our members.", says Elena Blüggel, Executive Board member of the BDSU.
