'They are neither the strongest who survive, nor the most intelligent, but those who are most responsive to change.' So theorized Charles Darwin in the 19th Century. That motto inspired the establishment of Ritter Business Development in 1999 and it still lies behind RBD's dynamism and readiness to adapt to the changing requirements of its clients.
Ritter Business Development is a one-stop-shop for enterprises interested in expanding into Eastern Europe. It searches out the appropriate opportunities there. Then it helps the enterprise realize the expansion step by step from conception to project management and local hiring.
RBD cooperates with international partners in the region and maintains close contact with the business, scientific and political communities there. This ongoing, inter-disciplinary know-how provides an unusually broad field of opportunity. Within it, we specialize in IT enterprises. From the beginning, the company's focus has been directed mainly toward new technology and technology transfers.
To our newest references belong long-term and successful projects, which we made for the following companies:
Strato AG [www.strato.de], Wirecard AG [www.wirecard.com], AM-SoFT GmbH IT-Systeme [www.am-soft.de] and NoemaLife SpA [www.noemalife.com]
At the same time, the company has also sponsored or organized a number of other cross-border initiatives, such as:
- International Conference and workshops about Information Technology
- A number of Polish painting exhibitions in Berlin "Art Bridge - Sztuka buduje pomost"
- International fan camps - events for young football fans from 36 countries [World Cup and Europa Cup]
- Participation in projects of foreign students and graduates
Viktoria Ritter, the firm's founder, has business in her dna. Her Polish family, with a long tradition in private enterprise, was active in the private sector, remarkably enough, even during the Stalinist regime of the 1950s. Dr. Ritter served as a lecturer in micro-economics in a technical institute in Poland for 10 years, and on transferring to Germany, in the Berlin administration of a large multinational corporation, before striking out on her own as a business developer for Central and Eastern Europe.
