Leipzig offers ideal conditions for start-ups and investors, supported by strong networks and successful start-up initiatives. Right from the start, you will have several local contacts consistently available to support you. They will be on hand to help you with issues such as drawing up a brief market analysis, developing business strategies for commercializing research findings, or even founding your company. Local and national subsidy programs are in place to provide financial support, and BIO CITY LEIPZIG offers affordable office and lab spaces especially for start-ups. Basic lab furnishings can also be provided.
Another advantage is Leipzig’s extensive research landscape. Young companies, in particular, conduct an above-average amount of research, so they tend to benefit from the cutting-edge infrastructure at Leipzig’s research institutions.
