Innovative. International. Inspiring.

"One thing that really stands out is the innovative mindset here." This is what Björn Rathjens, Engineering Manager at Klarna in Hessen, told us during an interview. Klarna was founded in Sweden and came to Central Hessen in 2014. And it is just one of many success stories that were written in our state. Another example is Terry Dean Pepper who set up his business consultancy in Frankfurt, leaving behind cities like Amsterdam and Paris. Why? His answer is simple: "Frankfurt is the most international city."

Let yourself be inspired by our Hessian Success Stories – and don't hesitate to contact us if you want to write your own.
