Subsidised commercial rents, co-working and start-up programmes throughout Berlin
WISTA supports start-ups both with subsidised space and low rents, which are funded by the state of Berlin for up to eight years, as well as with special start-up programmes such as the Adlershof Founder's Lab, where innovative ideas in particular enjoy support in the form of state funding to finance the start-up phase.
All WISTA business incubators and innovation projects in Berlin create space for growth in a network geared towards business development. We offer start-ups and young companies favourable rental conditions for office and laboratory space as well as co-working options with a full range of services tailored to the needs of start-ups.
Our aim from the outset is to integrate young companies into our inspiring network of science and business in order to promote cooperation and innovation.
Our Start-Up Centres and Business Incubators
In the Adlershof Technology Park, we operate the IGZ Innovation and Start-up Centre as well as twelve technology centres that are tailored to specific technology clusters and each offer optimal conditions.
In Berlin's City West, start-ups will find space to grow in the CHIC Charlottenburg Innovation Centre. And in the south-west, the FUBIC Innovation Centre will provide space for teams and start-ups in the immediate vicinity of the FU Berlin.
Gründungswerkstatt (Founder’s Lab)
Teams and start-ups in the seed phase can apply for our one-year start-up support programme. The scholarship, which is funded by the European Union (European Social Fund) and the state of Berlin, includes financial support and a free-of-charge workspace in the coworking space as well as workshops and coaching on start-up-related topics.
Flexible workspaces that also provide a platform for socialising and collaboration
At the WISTA innovation centres in the Adlershof Technology Park and in Charlottenburg, we offer workplaces and spaces for creative and collaborative work in close proximity to science and business.
At the Adlershof Technology Park, we have 550 square metres of space for start-ups, students, project groups from research institutes and companies. The immediate proximity to the Adlershof network of science, research and companies creates a unique climate for innovation. We rent out the workstations on a monthly or daily basis at attractive prices. A creative space instead of an open-plan office.
We offer the ideal place for productive work, networking and creativity in our Coworking Space in the Charlottenburg Innovation Centre (CHIC) in City West. Here you will find 16 flexible workspaces in a stylish, inspiring atmosphere and in close proximity to Campus Charlottenburg. In addition to the productive working environment, founders and companies will find access to the start-up scene, events for founders, a quiet room for concentrated work and a cosy sofa corner.
We offer our innovative shared office rental concept at the Charlottenburg Innovation Centre (CHIC) for teams who mainly work from home and are looking for a space for creative meetings. A fully equipped room with flexible furnishings that can be booked for one-off or regular team meetings.
