We loan because...
To honor the memory and continue the spirit of Helmer Marquardt, our dear friend and inspiring mentor.

About us
We are a group of people who have been fortunate enough to have worked with Helmer and to have had him as a friend and a mentor. With great warmth and generosity he always inspired us to ”lift ourselves by the hair” and to bring out the entreprenuer within.

Helmer, you are no longer with us. But inside all of us are at least some grains of the wisdom you shared, the flames of your inspiring pep-talks and humour of your unforgettable ”Helmer-isms”. These we cannot loose and as we go forward we hope that we will be able to pass them on to others.
