USA - High-Tech Centre Silicon Valley
Speed, agility and a strong network are of the essence here. While companies in other countries often adhere to their own concerns and work on their own top-secret innovations, the founders located in Silicon Valley are much more open. The exchange of ideas, know-how and contacts is a natural process for them, with quite an impact: Silicon Valley alone is home to 24 unicorns, i. e. start-ups worth more than $1 billion.
The Northern Germany Innovation Office Schleswig-Holstein - Hamburg - Bremen (NGIO) is the contact point for medium-sized companies seeking access to one of the world's most innovative locations. The NGIO provides access to Silicon Valley for medium-sized companies from Northern Germany.
