NRW.Global Business Award

Investors stimulate the economy, create jobs, strenghten innovation impetus and bring new products, services and processes to NRW. In doing so, they make a decisive contribution to the competitiveness of North Rhine-Westphalia. NRW.Global Business honors exemplary investments in NRW with the NRW.Global Business Award. At the same time, this acknowledgement is extended symbolically to all investors who have opted for NRW as their business location.

Over the years since its inception, the NRW.Global Business Award has gone to either an individual company or several companies for their exemplary commitment to NRW and their contribution to the economic development of the state.

And the award goes to ...?

NRW.INVEST AWARD 2020 goes to companies from India, the Netherlands, Israel and France

NRW.INVEST Award 2020 - Stream of the event

Four companies can look forward to this year's NRW.INVEST Award – and each one has its own unique success story: Whether it's Indian IT expert Infosys, which has become a pioneer in digitalization with a start-up capital of 250 dollars and is now launching its German business in Düsseldorf. Or the Dutch company 247TailorSteel, which is bringing its vision of the Smart Factory to North Rhine-Westphalia.

All the prize winners enrich the location with their expertise and technologies, creating new jobs and increasing the innovative strength of North Rhine-Westphalia. One of them is the Israeli company OrCam, which uses artificial intelligence to improve the everyday lives of blind and visually impaired people. With the French parcel service provider DPD, the winners also include a logistics expert, setting new standards in automation and sustainability with its state-of-the-art parcel sorting center in Hamm.
