The Institute for Life Competencies

The Institute for Life Competencies (IFL) is a German entity founded by Laura Kupler, a social entrepreneur, and co-managed by Philip Wegner, previously a social programs manager and currently a business strategist.

IFL provides coaching services and is endorsed by the German government. The coaching enables service users to participate more successfully in society, with a focus on employment, community participation, and social relationships.

Since 2022, the IFL has been part of the Shekulo Tov Group, including direct shareholding.
Shekulo Tov’s senior staff helps the IFL management adapt the Integrative Unit Model (IUM) to the local culture and regulatory requirements. In addition, we support business and marketing development and R&D.
During 2023, we hope to implement the model locally, and to scale it in 2024.
