What founders say

„We are a founding team from Aachen and greatly appreciate this location: The proximity to the universities gives us access to outstanding tech talents and creative minds. We started in the digitalHUB with a perfect match with Opel Kohl – soon further cooperations with the local energy and mobility providers will follow. As a member and co-initiator of the digitalHUB Aachen, we are convinced that the HUB is a place with supra-regional appeal, which fosters exchange between digital pioneers and, thus, facilitates the immense potential of the technology region Aachen. –  Michael Minis, MOQO

„I have already seen many coworking spaces from the inside – but the digitalCHURCH is unique: We particularly appreciate the atmosphere, the constant and uncomplicated exchange with industry experts, mentors and other start-ups as well as the high density of relevant partners. As a member of the digitalHUB, we were able to make the right contacts. The digitalHUB Aachen gave us access to further growth capital and were decisive for our current success story.“  – Daniel Kirch, Taxy.io
