Advice and support for start-ups and young companies

Young entrepreneurs in conversation at a coworking space

Welcome to Germany’s fastest growing hub for start-ups.

The lively Berlin start-up landscape is attracting more and more investors to the German capital. Berlin can attract by far the most venture capital in Germany and is becoming the most important target region for foreign investments. Numerous public institutions as well as private investors such as business angels, incubators, and accelerators are available to provide assistance in getting your business off the ground.

In addition, technology and incubators in Berlin are on hand to offer practical help with day-to-day issues faced by start-ups. Berlin’s universities and colleges maintain their own start-up centers and network via the portal Science & Startups.

A comprehensive overview of Berlin’s start-up ecosystem is provided by the Berlin Startup Map, a project of the Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises. This also gives a comprehensive overview of advice centers, start-up aid and events.
