Zukunftsorte: Our commitment to Berlin

The “Zukunftsorte”, Berlin’s places of future innovation, are sites for knowledge-based goods and services. They significantly contribute to the innovativeness and competitiveness of our regional economy. Berlin’s decision-makers aim to strengthen cooperation between these sites and have developed a comprehensive strategic concept to this end.

In September 2017, the Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises commissioned WISTA Management GmbH to “develop and implement intraregional regional management of Berlin’s Zukunftsorte”. The mission of the business office is to carve out the brand identity of the “Zukunftsorte” that were mentioned in the government’s coalition agreement – WISTA is active in 5 of them – and to foster networking and cooperation between them with the aim of strengthening Berlin’s position on the regional, national and international market. Moreover, the office should help to attract highly-skilled workers and high-tech companies nationally and internationally.
