Thanks to ist geographical location, numerous companies, associations and networks representing diverse business sectors have settled in FrankfurtRhineMain over the years. In fact, few places in Germany and Europe are home to such a large number of head offices as the metropolis on the River Main. The business start-up scene is similarly vibrant in our metropolitan region.

Frankfurt Economic Development GmbH and FrankfurtRheinMain GmbH are the primary points of contact for all matters concerning the key industries of the Frankfurt Rhine-Main region.
