Our story in brief

Our modern digital world is fast-paced, and there’s no prize for standing still. To keep moving forward, companies need adaptable strategies for output and internal development as well as for partnerships, mergers, and acquisitions.

Vertical is an innovation company. It is originally the brainchild of four founders: Christian Lindholm, Kenneth Salonius, Sebastién Gianelli and Paolo Borella. In five years, the company has seen changes and has grown into a full-service management consultancy. The company’s offering has always been above all customer-centric.

Vertical takes pride in the fact that it has seen the growth company field from all possible angles. We have provided, bought and facilitated services as well as developed and invested in growth companies.

A testament to Vertical’s market sensitivity is its focus change from an acceleration-based business model to project-based consulting. The accelerator model, while very much feasible, was deemed to not service Vertical’s clients in the best way possible. Vertical realized that in facilitating innovation, one size does not fit all and the batch model where there were multiple corporates along with a batch of startups was discontinued. Vertical took action in building new competencies by hiring professionals in business analysis and design as well as executing projects which required a new level of expertise.
