The German-speaking Business Club Northern Transylvania, founded in 2011 with its headquarters in Cluj-Napoca, is a forum for companies from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Romania, in which German-speaking business people exchange ideas in the context of meetings, events and seminars or in the design of joint leisure activities.

Both in the context of the monthly general meetings and in the form of newsletters, the currently more than 130 member companies are informed by experienced specialists with basic information on economic, legal, political and financial topics. In addition to the economy, other areas such as culture, diplomacy and education are of interest to the DWNT. In other words, we address any topic that is or might be of interest to our members.

The DWNT business club brings its members in contact with local authorities and important institutions. Thereby our business club gives its members access to a large network of institutions and companies from Romania, especially from Northern Transylvania.

Furthermore, DWNT is the right contact for companies that are thinking about investing in Romania. The DWNT also works together with other German-speaking business clubs from Romania and with the German-Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry from Bucharest (AHK) and we can put you in contact with our partners.

We are an important player in the German community in Cluj-Napoca and maintain excellent relationships with the city administration, universities and other foreign business associations. Member evenings and major events such as the DWNT New Years Reception, the Summer Festival or the Autumn Festival offer opportunities for networking and make new contacts in all directions.
