    About Spring Associates

    “We create future-proof strategies”

    Spring Associates is a strategic advisory firm specialised in transition strategies, investor services, and innovation & venturing. We believe that companies who will be future winners need to deliver value at multiple levels – not only to their direct customers, employees and shareholders, but also to the natural environment and to society at large.

    Our current economic system has brought unprecedented levels of welfare and prosperity. Yet it is clear to all of us that the ways we produce, consume and finance will have to change.

    At Spring Associates, we believe that technology, innovation and entrepreneurship are the main enablers of the transition that is required. The current system is sticky. In a way, it is too successful. To help you break out, we bring a combination of honesty, creativity and analytical rigor. We support you in thinking about your role in the future, and in how to get going transforming your company.

    Transition Strategies
    We support companies and institutions that find themselves confronted with fundamental choices. We help them to get a clear vision on future developments and (re)define their roles. Together with our clients these insights are translated into sharper strategies, clearer positionings and bankable business plans.

    Investor Services
    We help investors identify, assess and manage risks and opportunities relating to ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) throughout the entire investment cycle –from due diligence to holding. Our holistic service offering focuses on making sustainability part of the equity story while delivering real value to investment firms.

    We support transactions from both buy- and sell-side. The full transaction cycle is covered, from business plan creation and assessment, to managing transaction processes up to closing.

    Innovation & Venturing
    We are a hands-on parnter in the development of new ventures, propositions and buy-and-build strategies. Our focus is on integrating our clients’ new visions, roles and responsibilities into their business process. Together with our clients, we have developed several successful joint ventures. Our entrepreneurial, can-do mentality is often praised as one of our key qualities.

  7. Alumni about Spring

    Victor Simoncelli, Fisheries and Commercial Manager at Marine Stewardship Council
    "I look back with great fondness on my time at Spring. The setting of a young, highly talented team in an entrepreneurial environment resulted in practical solutions, even when dealing with complicated issues. Employees are typically flexible but thorough and sometimes a bit self-willed, but clearly appreciated by leading companies"

    Steven Bernaert, Investment Manager at Convent Capital
    "Spring is a group of intelligent, resourceful and creative professionals, but above all a team of great characters that makes it incredibly fun and rewarding to work with. If you are interested in working on strategic projects with top tier clients in a variety of industries, I warmly recommended joining the Spring Associates fellowship program."
