Tech Park Basel in 2020
The year 2020 was an eventful year for Tech Park Basel and its tenants. At the beginning of the year, the Tech Park Basel could integrate the space of the former “Basel Incubator.” With the addition of the directly adjacent lot of approximately 380 m2, the total footprint of Tech Park Basel increased to approximately 6,700 m2. The additional real estate was already fully rented before its inclusion in the site.
The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic impacted the operations of the Tech Park Basel. Many events had to be postponed or moved online, and the home office replaced working on site. All parties involved showed a great deal of patience and resilience. Fortunately, there were no company withdrawals in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Many tenants could secure additional financing and even achieve growth in many different areas. The total number of employees working at Technologiepark Basel, for instance, increased to over 240.
Moreover, one company highlight deserves special mention here: NBE Therapeutics was successfully sold to Boehringer Ingelheim for CHF 1.3 billion in December 2020.
