Our areas of focus
The climate-neutral and digital transformation in NRW calls for high investment and financing volumes – by both the private and public sector.
There is enough capital available for this in NRW. The central task is to bring together investors and capital seekers here.
Fin.Connect.NRW aims to network all relevant players, thereby actively driving forward the digital and climate-neutral transformation.
NRW is a key commercial and financial centre with innovative and export-oriented companies and a creative start-up scene. Many foreign companies and international banks have set up offices here.
One of NRW’s great strengths as a financial centre is the sheer diversity of new and established companies not only from the financial sector but also from the real economy, start-ups and science as well as its proximity to policymakers.
North Rhine-Westphalia offers a leading financial ecosystem of business and science that is constantly being expanded.
Some 768,000 students at 68 universities are studying here for their future careers. This makes NRW Germany’s number one region for developing new talent.
NRW is also an important location for science. In addition to a large number of universities and excellence clusters there are numerous research centres from a wide variety of areas.
Innovation, fintechs and insurtechs
A vibrant, dynamic fintech scene is developing in NRW.
Because their innovation allows them to speed up and support the necessary transformation, fintechs are valuable cooperation partners in digitalising the financial sector and rendering it sustainable.
Insurtechs help to transform the German insurance sector through digitalisation and sustainability and to create and optimise business models.
