As a regional business development company, we are supporting companies, industry and services free of charge for a period of more than 30 years, in Start-up & Innovation, Economic Development, Business Networks & Location Information and Inward Investment in order to strengthen the Technology Region.
AGIT is embedded in a region with numerous scientific institutions, such as RWTH Aachen University, Aachen University of Applied Sciences or Forschungszentrum Jülich. These ideal conditions offer the players in the Technology Region Aachen an ideal breeding ground for future developments in and around future technological topics. These are the best prerequisites for advancing technology transfer between universities and industry and increasing the required start-up activity of the Aachen economic region in order to keep it competitive or to further optimise this position. It is precisely at this interface that AGIT, including its participations and memberships, would like to play a central role.
The AGIT team works for the City of Aachen and the StädteRegion Aachen, the district of Düren and the district of Euskirchen and in 2020 was able to reach more than 7,670 employees through 74 company visits, conduct 233 individual business consultations as well as accompany companies with 44 individual patent consultations and get investments worth millions off the ground through 186 subsidy consultations, to name just a few examples of success.
