"The region is positively down-to-earth"
Bielefeld instead of Berlin: At first glance – and especially for non-East Westphalians – the difference couldn’t be bigger. Not so for P‑ton CEO Jürgen Hase.
The region in eastern North Rhine-Westphalia is one of the five strongest economic areas in Germany. And it is attracting more and more start-ups: The number of start-ups in East Westphalia-Lippe is growing by 34 percent annually, according to an evaluation by Founders Foundation gGmbH from Bielefeld.
Jürgen Hase describes how East Westphalia wants to become a hip and successful start-up location in Pascal Mühle’s article for Startbase.
