Exciting business contacts

Promoting sustainable business activities

Sustainability is becoming more and more important for companies. We can support you in establishing digital, low-emission and resource-efficient business models on the ground. In addition, we provide targeted support to companies in new ‘green’ sectors, such as renewable energies and the circular economy. Together, we can thus create future-proof jobs and company structures.


Empowering women in the private sector

Women contribute to a modern, diverse and resilient corporate culture that helps companies achieve greater economic success. We promote women managers and entrepreneurs with measures tailored specifically to them and their companies, for example management training and access to financing options. In addition, we provide companies with support in training women specialists. Together, we can thus create more and better jobs for women and a successful corporate environment.
