Background to the selection of the Hypezig site

One of the main reasons for the choice of location was the already existing contact to the key account EEX (European Energy Exchange) , with whom we have been able to successfully implement several projects since the end of 2019. After our very pleasant experience working with EEX, the decision was made to expand our business to Leipzig and the surrounding area, making us a reliable partner for Atlassian and DevOps consulting. An additional reason for the opening of a new location is our Partnership to codecentric is. For optimal use of the office space, to promote mutual exchange and to take advantage of further synergy effects, we decided to share an office with codecentric. With locations in Erfurt and Berlin, codecentric was also already based in the surrounding area.

From our point of view much potential for our industry in the fast growing region. Being based in Leipzig gives us better access to potential customers located in the city and the region, as well as contacts in the distinct start-up scene. Through the research and education landscape with a growing number of students in the fields of computer science or media informatics, we continue to have access to highly qualified ICT professionals who are available on the job market.

Our office is located in one of the hippest districts of Leipzig: South Suburb. The district SĂŒdvorstadt is perfect to go out for dinner, to enjoy a beer in the evening as well as to enjoy the green side of the city, like the Leipzig lake district.

The Invest Region Leipzig provided us with decisive support in our search for a location. From our point of view, it was fantastic to be officially welcomed as a new applicant. We were also given excellent support, important contacts with other companies and the local Chamber of Industry and Commerce with whom we could exchange ideas, and an interesting introduction to the city of Leipzig.

The city of Leipzig convinces me in several respects: It is an attractive, young and, above all, growing city with a creative start-up scene. These developments correspond to our ideas of a dynamic environment in which we want to prosper and realise our innovative visions.
