Ain't No MountainApplied Think Tank
An interdisciplinary approach is the only way to effectively understand and shape the societal, political and economic challenges marking the 21st century.
Globalisation, climate change, digital, industrial and regional transformations, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, changes in financial and economic systems, societal changes in and through politics and business… no other era has forced people to master such complex, highly dynamic and interconnected transformation processes at the same time.
Ain’t No Mountain aims to understand these changes and shape them in a bold, optimistic way.
Ain’t No Mountain represents the logical response to the changes facing our time. It also reveals the evolution of three business areas once considered separate disciplines – now interconnected in a more logical, interdisciplinary approach as we move into the future.
This is why Ain’t No Mountain is a 3-in-1 operation: Think tank, consulting firm, investment company. Or, as we like to call it: An Applied Think Tank. A think tank that promotes understanding, applies knowledge and supports corporate activity through advice and investment.
We support institutions, students and doctoral candidates in philosophy, politics and economics with stipends to help us better understand the phenomena impacting the 21st century.

We show institutions and companies how to turn their ideas into enterprising actions.
We invest in and work as a professional founding partner to exclusively selected founding teams.
Our stipends support work in areas like international politics, micro-and macroeconomics, and practical philosophy, just to name a few.
How can/should people act? How can they initiate and execute change? How can we enhance and improve existing systems for them to meet the challenges of today – and tomorrow?
It’s important to understand these topics as a whole, question existing theories, position them in their historical context, and evolve them further in an interdisciplinary approach.
We focus specifically on the philosophical discipline of ethics as an essential system of values and effective coordination. Having an ethical understanding is absolutely necessary within the social market economy, for example, to help this evolve this further in the face of rapid changes.
Ain’t No Mountain aims to shape political and public discussions. Ambitious people should have the ability to develop strong problem-solving skills, taking the responsibility to act appropriately – yet flexibly – in an increasingly complex world.
Optimizing business systems
Ain’t No Mountain provides companies with solid market insights, formulates strategies and assists with implementation, and offers support with management and the strategic (re-)alignment of business models – including operational implementation. We also provide access to top business partners and talents.
Ain’t No Mountain aims to establish medium- and long-term partnerships based on mutual trust, integrity and respect.
Establishing business systems

Ain’t No Mountain provides up to 3 million euros per company in initial and follow-up funding. As co-founder, we contribute to the operational business processes in each company.
As an applied think tank, Ain’t No Mountain pursues a very quality-focused boutique approach. We support the founders as a significant minority shareholder – a fair and equal partner, always focused on creating sustainable value.
