Welcome to Investitionsbank Berlin

The IBB's development areas

Business development

For companies

IBB helps to support Berlin’s economic momentum by providing made-to-measure funding for companies not matter what their size, sector or development phase. Our portfolio in the field of business development includes the promotion of investment, innovation, start-up and growth. This makes it possible to promote and consolidate Berlin’s versatility and strength as a business location.

Housing and real estate development

For living space

Housing is a basic need and an important location factor. That being said, affordable housing and climate neutrality are key issues for our city’s future. With its programmes, IBB promotes the construction and/or acquisition of new residential buildings as well as the energy-efficient and elderly-friendly modernisation and refurbishment of existing buildings. When it comes to social housing, we are the centre of competence for the Federal State of Berlin.

Labour market promotion

For people

IBB’s labour market promotion invests specifically in people and our society. Our focus is particularly geared to education, securing skilled labour and social inclusion. To achieve this, we make use of a variety of funding instruments from the Federal State of Berlin that are co-financed by the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+/ESF Plus). The measures support the social participation of disadvantaged people and combat poverty and marginalisation.
