Our offers for your international success
Business is global. With digitalisation, climate change and changing conditions for trade relations, the global market is changing disruptively and permanently. And then there are the impacts of the global Coronavirus pandemic. These far-reaching transformation processes require companies to be agile and resilient in a fast, flexible and tailored way.
Our Saarland companies, which are successful in many markets abroad with an export share of 50 percent, are feeling these changes on many levels. The Saarland economy has been undergoing permanent structural change for decades. For export-oriented SMEs, there is thus an increased need for individual promotional opportunities.
Saarland International @ co:hub66 offers a future-oriented and user-centred internationalisation programme, individually tailored to support small and medium-sized enterprises. Because an international strategy – whether in sales or purchasing – requires a great deal of know-how about the target markets. Moreover, a functioning network is essential, especially in times of eruptive global market changes.
With Saarland International @ co:hub66, saaris takes the global challenges into account and creates a space that gets Saarland companies fit for the future on an international level – networked, multilateral, collaborative, as well as innovation, service and success-oriented.
