To be courageous, innovative and thus successful even in difficult times is what distinguishes the medium-sized world market leaders in the industry, the hidden champions. Today’s diverse challenges, which arise primarily from digitization, climate protection and, last but not least, from COVID-19, require comprehensive transformations – in entire industries as well as  in every individual company. Hidden champions have always been particularly successful in recognizing changes at an early stage, responding to them quickly and acting accordingly. This is where their resilience and innovative ability are based. – Martin Dulig, Sächsischer Staatsminister für Wirtschaft, Arbeit und Verkehr
