Experience at eye level

From entrepreneur to entrepreneur

Karsten Wulf, owner and founder of the zwei.7 Group, took his first steps as an entrepreneur while still in school. In 1989 he founded Microchip GbR a hard and software trading company with repair service for Commodore computers. His greatest success as an entrepreneur started in 1993, when he founded the buw Group in Osnabrück while completing a degree in business management simultaneously.

Equipped with roughly only $ 500 in seed capital but plenty of enthusiasm and passion, he built one of the largest customer care and BPO providers in Europe. In 2016 the buw Group reported revenues of € 161 million and 6,000 employees in Germany, Romania and Hungary.

Karsten Wulf´s achievements are honored with various awards such as Entrepreneur of the Year, TOP Job Employer and second fastest growing company in Europe.
