Germany has long been a major international force in matters ICT related, boasting a unique landscape of traditional industry and a new generation of start-ups.
Furthermore, the Eastern Germany region has established itself as a highly competitive and innovative industry and technology location within Europe.

Interesting insights about current market trends and ICT business opportunities in Eastern Germany for American investors were presented by experts from US and German companies and high level executives from Germany Trade & Invest.
Microsoft Accelarator Berlin reported on the company’s positive investment experience in Eastern Germany. Furthermore, the second testimonial was provided by Andreas Marx (CEO, AV-TEST GmbH), who shared valuable experiences about his successful investments in Eastern Germany and gave first hand advice to future American investors.
