2 EU BUSINESS NEWS / 2019 German Business Awards Editor’s Note , Welcome to the 2019 German Business Awards The German Business Awards returns once more, allowing EU Business News to reward the hardworking individuals and firms hailing from Germany for their innovation and excellence in their business practice as well as their outstanding overall performance. Germany is home to over eighty million people and its location at the heart of a dense transport network right in the centre of Europe creates many benefits for businesses in the region. Many of these businesses are SME’s, which are known in Germany as the Mittelstand. The Mittelstand is formed of small and medium-sized companies which are crucial for Germany’s economy. The German Business Awards aims to provide many of these smaller, yet highly influential businesses with the richly-deserved recognition that they often miss out on.
