Smart Infrastructure Hub Leipzig- A Short Introduction

 

 

A PROGRAM DEDICATED TO FURTHERING TECHNOLOGY

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.

ONE HUB: THREE AREAS OF INNOVATION

Leipzig is home to many well-known corporates, startups and research institutes in the fields of energy, smart city and e-health.

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.

One unified community

Leipzig is home to a like-minded community of established innovators ranging from SMEs and established corporations, to dynamic startups and recognized research facilities (examples below).

Comprehensive Innovation Strategy

This project is very closely aligned with various European entities such as the EU itself, the German State, the Free State of Saxony, and the City of Leipzig.

A city rooted in technology and innovation.

Leipzig is a vibrant, affordable, and lovely city that belongs to the fastest growing regions in Europe, located just one hour south of Berlin. Entrepreneurs here benefit from expansive networking and partnership opportunities, and low living costs.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT THE SMART INFRASTRUCTURE HUB?

 

Our experience at SpinLab – The HHL Accelerator has been extremely valuable and crucial to the growth we have experienced with our company. The program helped ease some of the pains of the early stages of founding a company, and really helped us by providing access to a great business network that led to both funding and business opportunities. All of the startups in Germany who are just beginning should absolutely apply for the program.

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.
