Helma Lieberwerth, CEO and co-founder of Level Five Quaning, is elated about the successful round-up of the campaign: “We’ve noticed that a crowdfunding campaign does not run itself; you’ll have to have a decent plan, activate your personal network and continuously communicate about the campaign. Having said that, it’s great that we’ve managed to attract and bind 60 investors who’ll support the growth of our company. Of course they’ll too, profit from the growth we’re going to create in the upcoming years!”.

Korstiaan Zandvliet, CEO and co-founder of Symbid, is also happy with the closing of the digital investment round: “Level Five Quaning creates a great link between coaching, consulting and software. Here, software is mainly supportive of the Quaning-philosophy. Helma shows that vision is at least as important as the final product. Something the 60 investors clearly agreed with.”.



About Level Five Quaning

Level Five is a conjunction of two major pillars supporting the organization’s philosophy: Level Five and Quaning. In his book ‘Good to Great’ Jim Collins distinguishes five levels of leadership. Level five leadership represents leaders who build on long-term success by means of a, on the surface, contradictory mixture of modesty and professional will. A serving kind of leadership is exactly what our organization envisages when cooperating with our Partners, as well as in the interaction between Quaners and Quanees. Quaning is coaching, consulting, training in 1 and more. ‘Quan’ is derived from quantum mechanics, a physical theory that describes the behavior of matter and energy, combined with the ‘ing-form’: Quaning. It forms the basis for the Quaning Communicator, a device considered to be at the heart of our methodology. For more information, please check: www.levelfivequaning.com
