Hamburg Invest gives impetus to acquisition in the Netherlands
Targeted cluster analysis results in promising niches at western neighbors
It is the ambition of the German development company Hamburg Invest to approach a number of European neighboring countries more proactively. It considers the Netherlands an important target country. After all, Dutch companies that internationalize often set their sights on Germany. Hamburg as a potential and succesful German business location is not yet on the radar screen of too many entrepreneurs and decision-makers.
Karres-ARCUSplus, has provided Hamburg Invest with practical tools to get a better grip on the Dutch market. The acquisition potential of two technology clusters – Life Sciences & Health (LSH) and Mobility & Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) – was mapped out. Insight was provided into the dynamics of the Dutch market and into promising subsectors and networks within these clusters. With the translation of the formulated strategy into a compact action plan, Hamburg Invest has the right tools to start acquisition in the Netherlands.
