Therefore, the German government acknowledged that this region will shape the digital transformation of these sectors as Smart Infrastructure Hub Leipzig. There are many good reasons for innovators like startups, researchers, SMEs or corporates in these sectors to come and stay in Leipzig.
The Digital Hub Initiative is a program supported by Germany's Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, in which 12 regions in the country were designated as hubs, each hub responsible for making advancements in certain areas of technology. Leipzig is the official Hub in Germany for Smart Infrastructure.
The Smart Infrastructure Hub is a brand that links many players and projects in the fields of energy, smart city, ehealth and cross-sectional technologies. A regional hub agency links and moderates between those actors, building a strong network that is open for new partners and projects as well.
We're part of an innovative ecosystem we've developed in Germany to specifically help startups flourish. When you collaborate with our intiative, you can also have access to our incubator in Hannover, our VC fund, and our startup accelerator located right here in Leipzig.
Leipzig is a young, dynamic and fast-growing city. In recent years the city has realized many environmental and smart city projects and built the administrative setup to foster the digitization of our city jointly with our citizens and innovative companies – whether startups or established innovators. Therefore, working within the Smart Infrastructure Hub is an essential part of our strategy for tackling the problems of our future society.
As the Leipzig group, we are very pleased about the partnership with The Smart Infrastructure Hub. For the city, for our companies and for the people, citizens and customers, together we are constantly discovering new approaches to becoming better and better. That’s why we can turn cloud words like ‘digitization’ into action
The energy supply faces big challenges and unsolved questions. Through participation in the Digital Hub, we want to find suitable answers through innovative startups within the energy cluster. Moreover, as regional rooted corporation, the innovation capability of our region is close to our heart.
Coming from Zurich, we found a new home at Smart Infrastructure Hub Leipzig, where we not only attended the accelerator, but also won new partners and cooperators from the network. The associated fund Smart Infrastructure Ventures is among our seed investors. So we decided to stay in this ecosystem and opened an office in the hub coworking space.
