The city of Dortmund

Dortmund (ca. 600,000 inhabitants) is one of the largest cities in Germany. Because of its convenient communication facilities the city is an especially attractive location for business companies. In the last few decades the city has abandoned the redundant image of coal and steel and undergone a radical structural transformation in the region.

Alongside trade and crafts the city is mainly concentrated on new technologies, above all bio-medicine, information technology, microsystems technology (MST) and logistics. At the moment more than 37,000 people are employed in 1,400 firms in these "future" branches. In logistics alone there are almost 22,000 people working in around 640 firms. Furthermore Dortmund is the largest software location in North Rhine-Westphalia and contains the largest cluster of MST companies in Germany.

The "dortmund-project" is a local initiative which bundles municipal, business and academic powers. Thousands of highly-qualified jobs have been created in the TZDO and the TechnologieParkDortmund directly adjacent to the university, polytechnics and other scientific institutes.

Events

Training events and business breakfasts are provided to the tenants at frequent intervals. At least twice a month specialists for certain topics – such as lawyers, consultants or business economists – are invited in order to give qualified information to the mostly technical orientated young companies.

The full range of events you only find on the  German site.

This is just one of the services which our satisfied tenants profit from.
