Next Generation Business Development

What if you could stop chasing business and attract it instead?


Next Generation Business Development

What if you could stop chasing business and attract it instead?

Tell stories that attract more business...

Stand out in a crowded noisy global marketplace...

Use technology to efficiently scale up the business development process...

Save time and resources to focus on the prospects that matter...

Join the next generation of business development...

Time and attention span have become as scarce as information has become abundant...

The world is changing exponentially...

Thanks to ever-accelerating technological advances, the global economy has already become one village... 

This also means that there is a swelling avalanche of information and distraction...

While there is more opportunity than ever before, business development is increasingly difficult because getting ongoing attention in this crowded global marketplace is hard...

That is why it is time to upgrade your business development process...

Doing things as before just by 'running around' isn't cutting it anymore...

That is because we operate in a world where time and attention span has become as scarce as information has become abundant...

There is a better way to stand out and earn the ongoing attention of your prospects...

That is why we have developed the 'Next Generation Business Development' approach...

Here's an overview of how it works:

Step 1

What people really care about is your story because your skills are taken for granted. 

After all, you wouldn't be in business very long without them in this increasingly competitive world.

Because today we live in a hyper-connected, crowded and noisy global village. It is no longer about who you know, but all about who knows you!

Great stories are essential to make you stand out of the crowd...

You can do this by turning your value proposition into a narrative that resonates with your target market's audience.

We specialise in storytelling and can help you tell a bigger and better story that attracts more business...

Step 2

Having a great story to tell isn't worth much unless you have the right digital infrastructure to make it visible and shareable.

Today's easy to use technology let’s us become more efficient in bringing our best insights to a large number of prospects.

It also allows us to know who is really paying attention to our message. It simply takes the guessing out of marketing!


We deliberately call your online presence and email systems 'assets 'because they do much of the prospecting for you.

We can help you build systems to make your business development efforts smarter and more efficient...

Step 3

Most business never gets done because we fail to see follow up process through.

The AutoFunnels system makes sure that you automatically keep in touch with every single prospect and builds relationships of trust by supplying ongoing knowledge.

In other words, AutoFunnels turns the follow up process into a constant value delivery mechanism. 


AutoFunnels puts your digital assets to work and makes your prospecting efforts successful, scalable and cost-efficient.

We can help you earn the ongoing attention and business of your prospects.

Step 4

Focus your time and effort on the prospects that really matter. 

Your digital assets let you become more efficient in bringing your best insights to a large number of prospects.

And because they are digital, it also makes it possible for you to monitor who is really paying attention to your message. 


The smart universe approach takes the guessing out of marketing and prospecting!

We can help you increase you win more business and avoid wasting time on unqualified prospects

Who is this for?

I’m Baldwin Berges. I’ve been in business development for more that 20 years.  I'm focused on creating business stories that stand out. 

I specialise in crafting content-driven campaigns to attract and communicate with investors. 

My approach is always based on creating useful and compelling content to attract the ongoing attention of the target audience that will take you business to a higher level.

I also strongly believe that business is personal and that success fully depends on your ability to make real human connections. The big challenge and opportunity today is to figure out how to resonate on a personal level in a virtual world. I call this approach B2H (Business to Human).

Today’s technology is simple to use and it allows you to have close personal relationships with large numbers of supporters, investors and customers. It also makes it possible to drastically scale up your business development efforts. My work and devotion is to help individuals and businesses master these skills.





“The work that Baldwin is doing with content driven inbound marketing is like a fresh breeze in the financial services industry. It is helping business and individuals position themselves to build deeper relationships and provide the products and services that truly matter in this increasingly connected and social world.” 

Nilofer Merchant – Fellow at The Martin Prosperity Institute on “New Power”

“In the business we are in, the quality of business development will be finally measured in successful fundraising. To be successful, gaining credibility and trustworthiness in front of investors helps. Professional experience, ‘Know your product, know your market’ are only part of the story.. Essential complements are: A strong vision, the consistent and persistent implementation of a business development strategy, humility when succeeding and courage to stay when failing. It will take self-reliance, when analysing developments and flexibility in taking next steps to adapt to a changing environment and to improve. Finally, it is about being passionate about your business… Need a living proof? Meet Baldwin.” 

Ulrike Patig – Managing Partner at Moravia Capital AG

“Baldwin was the best international marketer of EM funds in the group at the time and recognised the African story when few others did at the time.”
