Stryber AG

Stryber AG

London, UK
Posted on Friday, June 28, 2024

At Stryber, we're all about pioneering new ways to grow business. This can only succeed if strategy and execution go hand in hand. We’re industry-agnostic, having worked with Sovereign Wealth Funds and large companies from various industries, from Financial Services to Food and Retail, with a strong footprint across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific. What sets us apart? Instead of trying to find growth from within existing organizations—often hitting barriers of internal resistance—we excel in reshaping the rules. We think outside the traditional boxes, employing fresh organizational and operational strategies to ensure growth doesn’t remain an ambition, but becomes a reality. Since starting in 2016, we've launched over 100 businesses, by applying our solid, data-driven methodology. Join our global team of 100+ Stryborgs from 30+ countries to create new ways to grow at scale. Learn more on www.stryber.com.
