All the activities of economic development and business promotion in Wilhelmshaven pursue the goal of sustainably improving the structure of the city's economic region and fostering positive development on the employment market.
A special priority is the provision of comprehensive advice, ongoing assistance and support to all resident companies. Another core focus lies, of course, on the elaboration of targeted business location offers and on settlement management for new business enterprises.
In addition to the large-scale settlement areas along the deep-water shipping channel, a pool of industrial and commercial sites covering around 200 hectares and offering space and facilities for customised requirements is available in different locations throughout the city region.
In all issues relating to funding opportunities, the economic development department is the right port of call and mediator. This also applies, by the way, to start-up entrepreneurs, who are offered extensive initial advice and orientation counselling. Thanks to a special municipal funding programme, we are able to particularly support the projects of business start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises.
