Why Berlin?

„We relocated our offices to Berlin because we were looking to cooperate more closely with people, and I don't mean just at the political level. Here, we have established many interesting contacts within the various scientific institutions, hospitals like the Charité and various biotech companies. I am confident that in future, we will be able to attract even more world-class scientific research to 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.“

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.“
