Welcome from Berlin Senator for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises

Hello from Berlin,

Welcome to the German capital — a unique spot and entry gate to Europe.

Berlin is proud of its internationality, its diversity and creativity. Our competitive advantage as a leader in science and technology is a magnet for foreign companies. They clearly choose Berlin for its leading science and tech environment, highly skilled talents, or Germany’s highest density of universities and research offices.

Big established international players like Tesla, Alibaba or Amazon but also hidden champions like Avazu or Snowflake have chosen the German Capital Region as their favorite location due to its innovative and future driven science and tech environment, for state—of—the art R&D in e.g., AI or clean tech.

Over the past 5 years, the US has proven to be of great interest to Berlin and its economy. Berlin exported EUR 1.63B to the US between Nov. 2019 – Nov. 2020. Our business office in New York supports companies with market information and finding business partners abroad. If you're thinking about exploring new global horizons, look no further.

Welcome to international Berlin!

Sincerely yours,

Ramona Pop's Signature
