The Umdasch Group Foundation is an initiative of Hilde Umdasch and Alfred Umdasch which has been established with the goal of linking together the fields of education, economy and ethics. It supports projects within their companies, Doka, Umdasch Group Ventures and umdasch The Store Makers. And it also supports initiatives which focus on the topics of education and knowledge transfer worldwide.

“Education is the best investment in the future.” Hilde Umdasch


Why are we so earnest about education and training?

It is our conviction that the world would be a better place if everyone had equal educational opportunities. A well-founded, broad-based education followed up by specialisation in a field that suits the individual's interests and talents lie within our responsibility for society and are the key to our future competitiveness as a company.


  • To improve quality and efficiency in education
  • To promote equal opportunities and the development of talents
  • To encourage entrepreneurial spirit and actions

Chances Magazine

"Chances" – The magazine of the Umdasch Group Foundation

This magazine presents initiatives and people who are involved with their ideas and visions in a world which is changing fast. Who do so with confidence and courage – and not with pessimism and cynicism. And above all without moralising undertones. This magazine targets employees, partners and customers – and people who combine economy with ethics and who recognise education as the biggest chance for our society.
