Why Berlin?

„The Novartis capital city office is located at the heart of political Berlin. All important decision-makers in the healthcare industry can be reached in this way: Politics, associations, service providers, payers, patient representatives and science. In addition, Berlin is a digital pacesetter - increasingly important for us as a pharmaceutical company. The future of health research is digital - contacts with innovative digital health start-ups in Berlin are therefore indispensable for us.“

Why Berlin?

„When Axel Springer AG emphatically affirmed its commitment to Berlin by moving its corporate headquarters to the capital, this was not just because the concept that our founder Axel Springer had of Berlin, as a new intellectual hub, is still as viable today as it was during his lifetime. It also happened because I am convinced that these decisions will bring our company long-term advantages, which will position us for both economic and publishing success in the future.“

Why Berlin?

„The Job Recruitment Initiative combines medical technology companies from the capital region in order to introduce young professionals to small and medium-sized companies and to illustrate the attractiveness of these employers to them. It is particularly SMEs who provide a working environment that satisfy the needs of young employees: flexible working hours, early responsibility, innovative working models, fair payment as well as less supervision and routine.“
