Start-up metropolis

Newcomers and digital business models

Berlin's economy is growing - also thanks to the many founders who have turned Berlin into a world-class start-up metropolis with their dynamism and intelligent business ideas. At the VBKI, we see ourselves as bridge builders between the world of newcomers on the one hand and the established economy on the other. We are convinced that the more intensive the mutual exchange, the greater the opportunities for the city and the location.

DIVERSITY

Women in the economy

Gender parity in the boardrooms of the German and Berlin economy continues to be a project for the future. We are working hard to facilitate female careers in business, for example by promoting the exchange of experience between women in management positions, establishing networks of female entrepreneurs and making role models visible.
