“Scale up your business into Düsseldorf – Germany´s Top Location for Business and Foreign Investment”
Düsseldorf is in the same league as London, Paris and Munich. More affordable than London, more multilingual than Paris, with a larger market environment than Munich: it’s obvious why Düsseldorf attracts investors from the entire world. With the strongest buying power of any region in Europe and conveniently linked to the entire world by air, water, rail and road, the city is an ideal place to sell goods and services.
Major innovative companies, like Vodafone, Henkel, Ergo and Ceconomy, all operate in Düsseldorf and are open to partnerships and collaborations. The vibrant startup environment is an important part of Düsseldorf’s culture of innovation. Düsseldorf is where agility, ingenuity and the startup spirit meet market experience, expertise, capital and a strong customer base. Düsseldorf’s winning formula is its closeness: newcomers from Germany and abroad are quickly acclimated to their new location, meeting the right partners for their business through extensive local networks.
