Digital Users

Traditionally, the Aachen region is characterised by small and medium-sized businesses. This applies to the many service and technology companies, but also to the manufacturing industry. There are numerous “hidden champions”, especially in the food industry and mechanical engineering. The heterogeneity of the region and the university landscape with RWTH Aachen University as one of the world’s top 100 universities and the FH Aachen as one of the ten largest universities of applied sciences in Germany, offer ideal conditions for innovation, knowledge transfer and mutual exchange.

Enablers from the IT SME sector

The IT sector with its high innovation potential is one of the strongest economic sectors in the city-region of Aachen. In the city of Aachen alone, 81 percent more people work in this sector than in the NRW state average. Numerous “hidden champions”, world market leaders in their field, are located in the Aachen Area.

The IT SME sector has a classically flat corporate structure. Therefore, these companies are particularly well suited as a bridge between start-ups and business and represent ideal cooperation partners for industry and digital start-ups.

Our enabler start-ups

According to Entrepreneurship Analysen IKT.NRW, the start-up ecosystem of the Aachen Area is among the top 3 in NRW, along with Cologne and Düsseldorf. The reasons for this are the regional strength in knowledge transfer, the positive creativity, innovation and start-up climate as well as the heterogeneous environment. Since the 1980s, more than 1,600 technology-oriented start-ups have emerged in the Aachen region. The region has 13 technology, service and start-up centres. In the digitalHUB alone, more than 100 digital start-ups are involved with digital products or services.
