The digitization professional Nortal will also operate in Mittweida in the future

Volksbank Mittweida is forging ahead with digitalization through its subsidiary Teleskopeffekt. The network with Estonia is an important building block. This country is considered a model country for digitalization in Europe and Mittweida is the bridge to Germany.

Now the players can announce another success. In March, a cooperation agreement was signed between TeleskopEffekt and the Estonian company Nortal AG. This makes Nortal AG the first Estonian partner to become active in the Werkbank32 innovation center. Nortal is a leading digital transformation company with 1,000 experts in 18 offices in North America, Europe and the Middle East. Nortal is particularly committed to the digitalization of public administration.

This partnership is also in light of the imminent opening of the first Estonian showroom in Germany. Based on the Estonian Briefing Center in the capital Tallinn, it will soon be possible to experience Estonia up close in Mittweida. On 5 May 2021, TeleskopEffekt will officially open the exciting event space in Werkbank32 in Mittweida, which offers many haptic opportunities to understand digitization processes more easily and immerse yourself in the digital world of Estonia.

Together with Volksbank Mittweida and Teleskopeffekt, Nortal AG will actively promote digitalization. Nortal will provide its team with a coworking space in Werkbank32 to show a local presence in Mittweida. Nortal and TeleskopEffekt are also planning formats and joint impulses that will optimally accompany everyone on their digitalization journey.

For Werkbank32 and Teleskopeffekt, this is the first successful bridge from Mittweida to Estonia. Further partners are to follow and the players are already in close contact with other Estonian companies. At the same time, they are also accompanying German companies and interested parties on their way to Estonia.

"We are delighted that we are now a point of contact for mutual exchange in Estonia and Germany," says project manager Sonja Hahn-Tomer, underlining the importance of this cooperation agreement. Behrens-Carlsson was also enthusiastic about the partnership: "Together, we will promote the partnership between Estonia and Germany and digitalization from Mittweida."
