It isn't just the numbers that speak for Bavaria. There are countless location factors that enhance its appeal. One of them shines brighter than ever these days: Bavaria guarantees a secure base for businesses – today and in the future.
In times of an increasingly probable Brexit this location factor should not be underestimated. No one knows which obstacles international companies might encounter after Britain left the EU. Deal or no-deal: experts predict a loss in value for the pound. This would weaken the economical power of the country and its partners. Others forecast radical changes concerning the legal situation. Freedom of movement and of labor might be questioned, while brand, design and license contracts could lose their validity.
So, in case of Brexit uncertainty is certain – even if you don’t believe everything that is said to happen. We Bavarians sympathize with those who don’t believe everything people say. Especially as there are many misconceptions about us out there. Instead we recommend that you have a look at the facts. And they send a clear signal: uncertainty is not the right basis for a prosperous and future-orientated company.
That is why many founders, innovators and CEOs in Britain cancel planned investments and search for new sites for their businesses. And here Bavaria comes into play as the facts speak for themselves – again. Besides the security-factor we come up with companies that have no equal, a grown landscape of world-wide leading research, unprecedented start-up networks and a digital infrastructure built for big ideas.
Nine of the 30 German companies listed on the DAX share index are headquartered in Bavaria. All of them are synonymous with outstanding innovation in their individual areas. And, right now, every single one is searching for partners to help bridge the gap between the technologies of yesterday and tomorrow. But we don't just have global leaders. Bavaria also boasts high-powered medium-sized enterprises in all kinds of fields – from industry 4.0 and mobility through to additive manufacturing, FinTech and InsureTech. Moreover, in Bavaria you also will find some of the best universities and independent research institutes in the world. Like Munich's Technical University, the Max Planck and Fraunhofer Institutes. They offer huge potential for young entrepreneurs and anyone who wants to become one.
We're into people like that. So even if you don’t believe all the predictions for Brexit. Having a look at the facts of Bavaria might open up some doors for your business.
