About Us

The Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH is the economic development company for the State. Our central task is to position and strengthen Hessen as an economic and technology site nationally and internationally. Together with representatives from industry, science and government, we work as a catalyst to develop Hessen further and make it permanently competitive for the future.


Our Customers
Our customers are Hessen's economy and international investors. We are available to all companies there that want to secure, build up, or expand their business activities domestically and world-wide. This particularly includes small and medium-sized businesses.


Our Partners
We are the interface between economics, science, business, and politics. Institutions and participants from these areas are thus important partners for achieving our goals.


Our Structure
We are a subsidiary of HA Hessen Agentur GmbH. Together with this and the HA Stadtentwicklungsgesellschaft mbH, we form the non-monetary column of Hessen business development.


Our Core Competencies
Using our experience, we advise companies, economics and politics; bring them together with domestic and foreign partners, as well as decision-makers; in this manner, provide significant impetus to the Hessen economic development. We are partners in interdisciplinary networks of economic developers, clusters, municipalities, universities, and research institutions, as well as chambers and associations at the regional, national, and international levels. With our wide range of activities, we also crucially contribute to sustainably strengthening the competitive edge of Hessen's business and technology location.


Our Portfolio
We are the central contact for Hessen companies, as well as scientific and political institutions. We link our foreign trade (outgoing) and on-site (incoming) marketing activities as well as our European expertise with the topics of technology and the future. We combine technology, marketing, and service expertise throughout the country. Due to the interdisciplinary preparation and wide networking in business, science, and society in Hessen, Germany, Europe, and the world, new developments and trends can be quickly identified and effectively implemented in funding activities for Hessian companies.
