Partners and Friends: Berlin Partner

— Alexandra Rydz

A strong, well-developed network is everything! And that’s exactly why we are pleased to introduce you to our friends from Berlin Partner.

Berlin – the place to be! Student, entrepreneur or artist – everyone can find their niche in Berlin and has the chance to forge their very own path in this vibrant and ever-changing city. We at Berlin Partner for Business and Technology want to accompany and support you on this path!! Berlin is one of Germany’s most dynamic economic regions, and here in this internationally attractive location we offer business and technology support for companies, startups, investors, and scientific institutions.

The German capital region offers the best conditions for innovation and growth. One of region’s outstanding strengths is its high density of excellent universities and research institutions. Profiting from that strength in particular are the innovative growth industries and future-oriented fields represented in the five clusters of the capital region – Health sciences, ICT| Media | Creative industries, Transport | Mobility | Logistics, Energy technology, and Optics | Photonics. Innovative products for global markets of the future are created at the interface between the industries and in close networking between the players along the entire value chain. We help to access and become part of this network.

In addition to the large key account companies, our focus is primarily on the small and medium-sized companies here in the capital. Our service packages enable us to offer companies and those who want to become companies precisely tailored information on location searches, help in answering questions on grants and financing, in the search for skilled workers, in seeing through exciting innovation projects, and on internationalization. And the best part: As a publicly funded agency, all of our support services are free of charge.

Berlin is also one of the top cities for startups and business creation worldwide. This is due not least to the successful infrastructure for promotion and financing and the large number of incubators, accelerators, maker- and co-working spaces, which offer the best conditions for entrepreneurs.

Start-a-Factory, based at the Fraunhofer IZM, is one such example that specifically addresses the needs of hardware startups and of prototype development and manufacturing. As long-standing partners, SAF, IZM, and Berlin Partner, and above all the optics and photonics cluster, are in regular contact when it comes to new projects and the implementation of new business ideas. At the forefront are joint information events, the search for cooperation partners, and the successful transfer of technology between science and industry.
