Significant spending power, an innovative climate, its location at the heart of a dense transport network right in the centre of Europe and highly skilled workers – all of these are benefits of Germany as a business location.
Science and research with a practical orientation and well-trained qualified professionals have generated an excellent environment for innovation – and as a result, Germany is a European leader with 32,000 patent applications in 2013. Thanks to the highest absolute European spending power in 2012 of 1.6 billion euros, it is easy for new ideas to find a market.
Many of these are generated by what is known as the Mittelstand. The Mittelstand is formed of the scores of small and medium-sized companies which are characteristic for Germany’s economy. You’ll find it easy to network with these companies, not least because 680,000 companies have international roots, too.
The German infrastructure will also make it easy for you to set up your own business. More than 230,000 km of roads, 37,000 km of railways and a modern telecommunications network will take you, your ideas and your products to your destination.
