Financing Package

Funding programs for investment and innovation.

Berlin offers attractive funding programs for all phases of a company’s development – from seed to growth financing. The range of financial incentives here extends from public loans to guarantees and venture capital, and even to direct grants for investment and innovation projects.

What does the Business Financing Package offer?

Do you intend to locate to Berlin, to grow at your current location, or are you planning an investment project? We at the Society for Economic and Technological Promotion of the State of Berlin, the Berlin Partner for Business and Technology GmbH, will find the right financing solution and will accompany you in your applications for funding. Here, we work closely with project management agencies, funding banks and potential financing partners on a state, national and EU level.

How it works:

We discuss the plans for your project, which ideally will already have been worded in the form of a project description or business plan. Together, we conduct a review of the conceivable funding and financing instruments, make contact with relevant partners and accompany you through the application process.
