The NUI regional ranking – short for New Entrepreneurial Initiative – looks at the areas where companies start new businesses in Germany, and uses the data to describe the entrepreneurial dynamics of the various regions.
The district of Munich is followed in the ranking by the independent city of Leverkusen, the district of Miesbach, the independent city of Rosenheim and the district of Starnberg. The independent city of Munich took spot 65 in the ranking. Two additional districts in the greater Munich area are also listed among the top 20: the district of Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen took spot number 6, and the district of Dachau spot 17. This means 4 of Germany’s top 20 regions are within the Munich suburban railway network. In total, 11 of the 20 top regions are located in Bavaria.
City states dominate the NUI federal state ranking
Newcomers to the top 20 group include the independent city of Kempten (Allgäu) and the districts of Dachau and Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The independent city of Schwabach returned to the leading group. In contrast, the independent cities Wiesbaden and Baden-Baden and the districts of Ebersberg and Marburg-Biedenkopf are now longer among the top 20. Since 1998, the Institut für Mittelstandsforschung Bonn has published the number of regional business registrations per 10,000 working-age inhabitants every year.
In the federal state ranking, Bavaria came in fifth. The two city states Berlin and Hamburg lead the ranking and are followed by Schleswig-Holstein and Hessen.
