Rohrbeck Heger GmbH

Strategic foresight + innovation management


We help organizations to become future-prepared, to mitigate threats and grasp emerging opportunities, and to create a prosperous future.

Rohrbeck Heger was founded in 2014 by René Rohrbeck and Tobias Heger after years of continuous scientific and practical work in strategy, innovation, and foresight. The founders’ ambition was to form the leading strategic foresight and innovation management consultancy.

In 2022, we joined Creative Dock Group, the world’s largest independent venture builder, following which Rohrbeck Heger GmbH merged into Creative Dock BER GmbH in August 2023. With a mission to make Europe a global digital leader, Creative Dock has already built and scaled ventures for more than 50 multinational companies, including businesses and products for its clients in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, the US, and Australia.

Our expertise in Strategic Foresight further strengthens Creative Dock’s established success in building new businesses. Together, we engage with clients in long-term, strategic dialogues to build businesses that will last. Expanding and enriching our respective service offerings enables us to move from foresight work all the way to market launch and scaling.

Our activities are build on three pillars:

  1. Implementation: applied foresight for growth, innovation, strategy, and organizational change
  2. Research: scientific research and theory building to further the field and improve the understanding of foresight and its effects
  3. Education: university and executive education, talks and keynotes to increase awareness, knowledge and application of foresight practices

Our mission is to increase firms' chances of long-term success and enhance firms' sustainable competitiveness. To achieve that, we support our clients in building and leveraging strategic foresight capabilities to create value-creating opportunities. With our clients we:

  • Identify emerging growth opportunities
  • Focus R&D spending towards high-margin innovations
  • Develop processes to trigger and fuel new innovation initiatives
  • Create future-oriented strategies

Striving for Excellence.

We don’t settle for anything less than excellence and we have the self-honesty to admit when we’re wrong and the courage to change.
