strategy, startups, ventures – based in berlin, acting global







5WX sees itself as a team of strategic and innovative minds from different disciplines, motivations and generations. We accompany digital transformation in social, economic and technological contexts.




We consider responsibility and the inclusion of complex realities, as they are already emerging today for the future, as drivers for change.









Three fields of opportunities to get ready for the digital age and have a positive impact.





How it all started

Carl Frech and Jeremias Schmitt met at the School of Design Thinking at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam and developed the idea for the 5WX. With the entrepreneurial background of Carl as partner, strategic consultant and chairman of the supervisory board at Fuenfwerken Design AG, the larger idea of a joint foundation with Fuenfwerken was born.

Our roots and friends

5W is the abbreviation for our founding partner Fuenfwerken. A design company that for 20 years has been one of the most successful addresses in Germany in the strategic and practical development of communication and brands for products and services in all media. We like to speak of a family and thus of around 60 colleagues in Berlin and Wiesbaden who are related to us and can complement our services. In addition, we cultivate cooperation with movers and shakers and creative people from other fields in order to broaden our horizons in projects. Hence, we are glad to have gained another strong partner on board: 5W motion offers solutions in the area of visual storytelling.
