"Entrepreneurial Regions" - The Initiatives

Whether in Berlin, Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, Saxony or Thuringia – "Entrepreneurial Regions" (German: Unternehmen Region) is active in all New German Länder. This is illustrated in the approach taken by "Entrepreneurial Regions": it is not important where the initiatives’ headquarters are located, but how they use their potentials and competences to strengthen their region's competitive ability.
