Berlin-Brandenburg, the German Capital Region, is a major centre in the digital world, with more than 5,700 digital enterprises headquartered here accounting for some 3.3 billion euros in revenues. Industry giants such as SAP, Sky, eBay and Oracle have set up shop in Brandenburg, alongside Amazon and Zalando. Moreover, young people who graduate from such renowned institutes as the Konrad Wolf Film University Babelsberg, the Media Innovation Center Babelsberg (MIZ) and the Hasso Plattner Institute run by Potsdam University are particularly attractive for pioneers of Web 2.0 such as Flightright, Clipnow, Castaclip and iVersity, as well as for companies such as Interlake, Rotor Film and Experimental Game.
The German Capital Region is the nationwide leader in the number of start-ups founded since 2004. One reason for this positive development is the fact that Berlin-Brandenburg is very quick to recognize new trends in digital technology and content — and can even set new standards. WFBB offers a full range of services for companies in the region’s digital media industry that intend to enjoy the excellent promotional programmes offered by the ILB Bank and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg.
