BERLIN IS OUR PASSION.

Berlin Partner works on economic growth, promotes business, technology and innovation, and presents the advantages of the capital to companies, investors and talents.

Berlin Partner supports companies and scientific institutions that are already established in the region in their expansion plans and connects them within the strong Berlin Partner network. In addition, Berlin Partner's experts provide information on funding opportunities and advise on the search for suitable locations or highly qualified personnel.

Berlin Partner's successes are measured by a range of indicators: the focus is on the number of jobs that can be newly created or secured in Berlin with the support of Berlin Partner. In addition, it is worth taking a look at the investment volume and third-party funds raised.

RESULTS

In the last year 2022, 8389 new jobs were created in just the 239 projects we successfully managed.

In the process, around 1100 million Euro were invested and third-party funding of 140.1 million Euro was raised for research and development.

OUR NETWORK

We strengthen both Berlin as a business location and our more than 240 partners from business and science, who we connect with the most important players from the fields of business, research, sports, culture
