sharp minds

We inherited our ingenuity and the firm belief that success hinges on community cooperation from our ancestors, who had to cope with a harsh environment. What’s more, because of the size of our city, we have always had to rely heavily on our imagination and keep a keen eye on newly developing trends. Being creative, striving for innovation and pushing back boundaries is embedded in our DNA. We aren’t afraid of the future, on the contrary. And to ensure we are properly prepared to meet this future, we actively work at shaping it.
