Here the name is a program. We combine “Levana”, the Latin term (levare, lat. = to pick up) with the power of the Chinese-inspired “C”. This describes the service we provide for our partners quite aptly: we help both sides to grow and become even stronger. The Chinese expression for this, by the way, is 举起 [舉起] jǔqǐ


"For us, dedicated cooperative atmospheres are the engine for sustainable growth."


"Successful change requires curiosity, understanding, and time."


"Digital know-how, agile working methods, and comprehensive knowledge are our Key Values for your business success."
