With 60 % of the venture capital invested throughout Germany, Berlin is clearly the most important region for tech investments. The investment volume of venture capital in 2021 was 10.5 billion euros (previous year: 3.1 billion euros). The German capital continues to be one of the top European locations for such investment; in 2020 it was in third place behind London and Paris.
Local business angels, company owned and university related incubators, accelerators as well as national and international venture capital investors support Berlin’s young entrepreneurs in the foundation phase. Numerous successful startups have emerged that way, e.g. Zalando, Mister Spex, N26, SoundCloud, Wooga oder Delivery Hero.
