Welcome to the technology-region Aachen!

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, with annual sales of 4.8 Mio. Euro in 2018, was able to reach more than 2.000 company representatives at events, carry out 173 individual management consultancies, accompany 52 patent applications and launch 104 promotional consultancies with investments amounting to millions, to name just a few examples of success.
