When initiatives like the one on Pascalstrasse arise on site, this shows that the entrepreneurial spirit is lived here and the importance of digitization is recognized. Politicians can only welcome and support the will to shape digitization locally and drive it forward with great commitment. This networking of medium-sized IT companies in Aachen is a role model for other regions. "
