Startup activity declines sharply, as do fundings. At the same time, we face mega-problems that need innovative answers.

The term "innovative" is already in the title of the current coalition agreement. The new Senate strives to develop our city into one of the most important business and technology locations in Europe.

Among the measures to achieve these goals:

  • Further develop the Berlin Startup Fellowship and extend it to 12 months.
  • Found the GovTech Campus Berlin to facilitate and intensify collaboration between Berlin's SME and startup scene and the Berlin administration.
  • Push for a Bundesrat initiative that will enable founders from non-EU countries to start up under specified criteria.
