Berlin - the Start-up and Innovation Capital


Science meats business


Berlin - Capital of Science



Berlin offers the most tightly woven network of university and non-university research institutions in all of Germany – an excellent basis for interdisciplinary work and cooperation with industry.

Berlin is one of the largest and most diverse science regions in Europe:
  • 4 Universities,
  • 4 Colleges or institutes of art,
  • 7 Universities of applied sciences,
  • 26 private universities,
  • 22 Technology parks and business incubators,
  • 70 non-university research institutions,
  • more than 165,000 registered students, about 49% are women (WS 2013/2014).

Roughly 200,000 people from around the world teach, research, work and study here. Approximately 16 percent of all students come from abroad, most of them from Turkey, China, Poland, Russia, France, the USA, Italy and Bulgaria. Many cooperative programs link Berlin’s institutes of higher education with partner institutes around the world.

Active interaction between institutes of higher education and technology-oriented companies are commonplace in Berlin: Roughly 80% of university-level instructors cooperate with companies and roughly 50% of the companies work together with research institutes.

Berlin - Hotspot for founders and new venture capital



Berlin is Germany’s hotspot for founders and also the new venture capital. Entrepreneurs – and also potential entrepreneurs – find exactly the right environment here to implement their business ideas.

In 2012, roughly 44,228 new companies were founded in Berlin, thus remaining the unequivocal start-up capital of Germany and gaining even more ground in comparison with other German states. The capital is particularly appealing for founders in the creative sectors and technology. On average, two new technology-related start-ups are founded in Berlin every day.

The starting conditions are advantageous: office and location expenses are much lower than in other major cities. Berlin attracts young, highly qualified people from all over the world. The high life quality at comparably low living costs, the vital scene life and international environment are the reasons for young entrepreneurs to implement their business ideas here.
