Stuttgart Region Economic Development Corporation supports companies in locating or relocating to the Stuttgart Region or in expanding in the region, and accompanies them over the entire decision-making process in terms of the location. When actively addressing investors, the WRS staff members provide information on the benefits of the location and the business opportunities in the region.
A couple of examples: the Business Angel Forum promotes young companies and, as a network for private capital providers, establishes links between selected knowledge-based start-up projects on the one hand and private investors on the other. A Welcome Package offers services for companies wishing to set up a branch in the Stuttgart Region. For a three-month period during the start-up phase, the company has access to furnished office space with a reception service and use of the conference rooms in a business centre at particularly favourable conditions. A pool of specialised service providers offer free initial advice on topics related to locating to the region, such as what legal form to choose, taxes or hiring staff. Complimentary services for culture, information and leisure round off the service offering.
