Menschen von oben sitzen an einem Tisch und arbeiten

The Berlin startup ecosystem has developed into an indispensable and stable pillar of the Berlin economy. In 2022, around 90,000 people were employed in Berlin startups. Up to 600 new startups are founded every year. These have created tens of thousands of new jobs in recent years. Up to half – or more – of the VC money invested in German startups has been flowing to Berlin for years. Through cooperation with established companies, startups and their innovative solutions contribute to strengthening competitiveness in many sectors of the economy. Berlin is in competition with other international startup cities. Well-trained young talent, a powerful and modern infrastructure, good networking opportunities and an administration that is open and accessible to the needs of founders are relevant factors for continuing to the success as a startup capital in the future.
