Startup Network Hessen: TQ Awarded Management

Last week, the Hessisches Ministerium für Wirtschaft, Energie, Verkehr und Wohnen announced that Frankfurt startup center TechQuartier will manage the startup network in the Rhein-Main region for the state government. A corresponding management contract was concluded after a Europe-wide call for tenders, as Economics Minister Tarek Al-Wazir announced on Tuesday.

“Young, innovative companies are indispensable for a vital national economy and give impetus to established companies. As a high-profile startup center, TechQuartier is the ideal partner to make the startup location even more visible and vibrant.”

Since its founding in 2016, TechQuartier has gradually expanded its offering for technology-driven startups and built up an extensive network.

“Startups need assistance in various areas. As an ecosystem manager, TechQuartier can use its know-how and existing contacts even better for startups and the Rhein-Main region.” ”
Dr. Sebastian Schäfer, Managing Director, TechQuartier

The contract awarded by the state covers a wide range of tasks. These include, for example, individual consulting for startups, the development of event and networking offers, and the mediation of contacts between startups, companies, and investors. The activities are intended to drive start-up activity in the Rhein-Main region and radiate to the other regions of Hessen.

“We want to develop a vibrant startup community in order to make Hessen as a location even more attractive overall for startups and investors.”
Tarek Al-Wazir, Hessen Minister for Economic Affairs, Energy, Transport and Housing

The new Internet platform will serve as the first point of contact for founders.

An annual budget of 1.5 million euros has been earmarked to support Hessen’s start-up ecosystem. In addition to the mandate for the TechQuartier and for the StartHub platform, this award also includes the development of funding offers and cooperations.
