3DSE aspires



One must attempt the impossible to achieve the possible.
Hermann Hesse


We simply consult differently.

Our ambition is to be the consultancy for innovation and product development in the German-speaking world. We meet these aspirations by understanding and getting to the heart of R&D challenges and by developing approaches that bring our customers to the forefront. And we take the time to look deep inside. This sets us apart from other consultancies.

In the end, what’s important is that the results we have created together make an impact. This requires more than just a linear approach; in many cases we have to think two steps ahead to arrive at an effective solution to the problem.

Our clients benefit from the expertise we possess across many industries. We are familiar with the challenges, the dominant logic of success, and the key approaches in all important technology industries. Taking inspiration from other industries, we are able to find suitable solutions “at the forefront” together with our clients.

We combine the world of traditionally established technology companies with the world of young, dynamic digital startups.

Our team makes the difference. We are consultants who get down to business. With joy and passion, we place clients and their specific challenges and problems at the heart of what we do.

R&D consultants

Our range of competencies covers all important areas of R&D. We advise our clients regarding efficient setup and effective orientation as they optimize the R&D organization. We support our clients during the transformation of R&D to be prepared for the challenges of digitalization and globalization. We know agile and streamlined product development like the back of our hands. In addition to methodological and technical competence, we have the necessary tools to support our customers – their management in particular – during the transformation process.

We are a Fair Company

3DSE culture

This sets us apart.

We live a modern corporate culture of open communication and short channels. You can expect a great team with young and experienced players. Members of our staff have individual freedom to organize their work and take on responsibility from day one.

Continuing education is important to us: We support your career planning and develop your competencies with regular advanced courses and seminars in our academy. We are located in the heart of Munich between Central Station and Stiglmaierplatz. We are easy to reach with the subways and S-trains and our company has spaces in an underground parking garage for our employees.

And because work should also be fun, we offer fresh fruit, free drinks, a cleaning service, a foosball table, cool sporting events, a ski weekend in a rustic hut, and our parties (which are legendary).
