Who are you?
My name is Sandra Volz, I am the CEO of the company FCC-Karrierefabrik and work as a consultant, coach and lecturer.
What’s your mission?
My mission is to share my experience and knowledge with students, startups and young professionals – “pure experience” is therefore the vision of the company. The most exciting part about my job is definitely to see dreams come true.
Where are you located?
My office is in Pforzheim, located between Stuttgart and Karlsruhe in southern Germany. I not only work for local clients, but also for national and global clients.
How did you start and when?
I started in a small room nearby my apartment in 2002. Initially, I was a fashion retail trade consultant, and at the same time I also had a few lectureships at different Universities.
What are your services/products?
First of all I support design startups to master sales, market entry and distribution. I help to create a solid business plan and show how to calculate correct prices. One of the most important points is a good elevator pitch and applying self-marketing. My intention is to coach companies who want to become more established and help them build a solid long-term growth strategy.
Who are your clients/customers?
International sustainability-minded founders who want to establish their business alone or in a team, and of course companies who want to be more developed.
Who would you like to collaborate with?
Networks, sales agencies, public relations agencies and producers.
What do you want to achieve in the future?
I want to help startups and young professionals to avoid insolvency, and to raise awareness of sustainability without losing their authenticity.
