“Leipzig as a creative city”, first session of the series “Doing business in…”
|27 Nov 2023
What makes Leipzig interesting as a start-up location?
Why should you definitely come to Leipzig to see the opportunities for yourself and find out about the German market and gain initial experience?
On 4th December, the series “Doing business in…” will start with a session devoted to the opportunities offered to entrepreneurs and start-up companies by the city of Leipzig. The event will be held from 14.00h to 15.00h CET via Zoom.
Leipzig is the city of creativity. The city of art and music. After the post-socialist deindustrialization in the wake of German reunification, the city’s vacant industrial facilities were filled with creative minds. The most famous example is the “Spinnerei”, where galleries and artists‘ workshops have created a new hotspot for contemporary art in Germany.
An art academy, a music academy, a literature institute and many social science faculties at the university are the source of interesting creative projects and start-ups. The start-up consultancy SMILE at Leipzig University and various other players such as “Creative Leipzig” and “Creative Saxony” form a lively ecosystem. In this session, you will learn strategies that will make you fit for entering the German market.
ISLYE (International Soft Landing for Young Entrepreneurs) is the mobility program for young entrepreneurs of the Arqus Alliance. In this session, you will learn the basics about the different partner universities and the mobility requirements for the ISLYE programme, which will help you to internationalize your business idea. The event will be held in English.
