RUHR AREA
ONCE COAL - TODAY DATA

From coal to Data

Why the Ruhr area Is the new B2B Data Hotspot

For half a century, the Ruhr region has drawn people from all over the world to the area to work in the coal & steel industry. It was THE place to find hands on-work, but also to create innovation.The coal sector has been closed in 2018 – and therewith the area´s magnetism.

But what remained, is the industrial core and the immense ecosystem that has evolved during the last 50 years:

21.000 industrial companies, SMEs to world leading corporates
22 universities with high potential employees
Germany´s largest metropolitan region with > 5 Mio people
Instead of coal, we now have a new material to work with: DATA! More precisely: unique industrial data, that has been collected over decades and has not been used to its full potential yet. Let´s change that.Let´s dig in. Let´s get our hands on data

Let´s change that.
Let´s dig in.
Let´s get our hands on data.
