There are already strong local companies and extraordinarily good universities. The quality of life in the Leipzig region is high, coupled with affordable and available housing, which is definitely attractive for workers of all kinds."
"Invest Region Leipzig actively supported us here and our employees are very happy in our great new premises in the middle of the city, [...]. It was very helpful for us that Invest Region Leipzig is so well connected and was able to open many doors for us."

Ingmar Bergmann, Regional Manager Region East
"A high potential of skilled workers, especially due to the universities and colleges in the Saxon region, was an advantage for us. In addition, there is a good investment climate for medium-sized companies, here through the support of the SAB, which helped us a lot ... The discussions and advice provided by Invest Region Leipzig GmbH have also supported us."
Tobias Drechsel, CEO
"We are glad to have taken this step and gone to Leipzig to be able to further develop Thinkport ... Invest Region Leipzig made it extremely easy for us to get started in Leipzig. Especially the personal support and the prepared information about the location helped us to get an overview. I can really recommend to contact IRL if an expansion to Leipzig is in question."
Jens Ziegler, Branch Manager Leipzig
"Our advisor from Invest Region Leipzig understood very well what kind of property we were looking for and worked with us to find the perfect fit. He then also gave me the tip to apply for subsidies. We also made use of the recruiting service. That went very well. Without the support of Invest Region Leipzig, it would have been a lot more difficult, especially when it came to finding offices."
Gerald Schmitt-Reichardt, Site Manager Leipzig
"Invest Region Leipzig GmbH is our local partner, they were instrumental in helping Huboo settle in Leipzig, especially in finding a suitable logistics location. It's no exaggeration to say that we couldn't have done it without them. At least it made it a much smoother and faster arrival in the region."
"Leipzig is a hub for logistics, supply chain, eCommerce, tech start-ups and innovative companies. This makes it a perfect fit for our innovative business approach, based on our leading technology and our globally unique Micro Hub model."
Marcus Petzold, Branch Manager
"A big compliment goes to the commitment of Invest Region Leipzig and the centrality it offers. We were supported in our search for premises, networking with local networks and in our search for specialists. The city gave us a warm welcome and all Natuvions who use the office in Schlossgasse quickly feel very much at home."
Alexander Türpe, Chief People & Culture Officer bei powercloud
"We have always underestimated the region in terms of how to grow here. It is now much more than what we had originally planned ... I didn't think we would grow like this so quickly. But I am happy that we have found so many good people. Hardly any city in Germany is more beautiful and has so much quality of life and further potential."
Rocco Bruno, Branch Manager

Daniel Schwemmer, Sales Manager
