Extensively developed broadband connections, many other great YouTubers with whom one can launch some great projects, and a multitude of MCNs and media production companies ensure that NRW is the ideal federal state for YouTubers and streamers.
Markus Hündgen, CEO & Managing Partner European Web Video Academy
NRW is the No. 1 federal state for web video. Nowhere are there more successful web video makers, nowhere is the young video scene more active. Although the life of the YouTube generation takes place in the net: the personal contact is still the most important. And NRW provides the best conditions for this – as well as for the German Webvideo Award.
CEO WDR Mediagroup
A law from the “Cologne constitution” shows just why the Internet sector is ideally located in NRW: “Et bliev nix wie et wor” (nothing stays the same) – expressing openness to new developments – underlines the innovative spirit and desire for progress in the region. These are the best conditions for online companies.
