The strategy followed by the Kinderwunsch Institut is to operate as a lean, flexible, family-run private enterprise that will, by 2025, be the leading business in our sector in Southern Austria.
We consider our core market to be that area within the radius of a 3-hour car journey of Graz.

To be a leader when it comes to the services we offer our customers and our success in terms of births, we aim to achieve at least 400 to term pregnancies per year and generate an EBIT percentage of 30%.
