Senior Project Manager, Altios France
Challenge
  • With a gross regional product of €625 billion, the Bavarian economy is comparable to that of Switzerland. Bavaria attracts companies and investors at a global level. According to Deutsche Startup Monitor, 16 per cent of startups in Germany are in Bavaria, of which 11 per cent are in the tech startup hub of Munich.
  • To represent the region in France, the agency required an outside firm with experience and knowledge in working with companies on expansion and location needs. Bavaria appeals to companies in a vast array of sectors including automotive, aerospace, energy, insurance, and finance, among others.

Solution
  • Invest in Bavaria selected Altios to represent the agency in France.

  • “We offer different ways to help businesses set up in Bavaria,” said Apfel. “First, we provide services like information on Bavaria, networking, events, and legal and tax guidance. Second, we offer a location search to help companies find the right place to set up—from a plot to an office building, co-working space, and more. And the third part of our service is providing contact points in areas such as legal, tax, and public and private institutions.”

Result
  • Working with Altios France, the agency has extended its reach throughout France. Leveraging Altios’ strong network and experience in global expansion, Invest in Bavaria can assure the region is top-of-mind with French investors.
