BSBI Visit to Berlin TXL
Host: Michael Ferenc, Careers Service Manager
Venue: Flughafen Tegel 1, 13405 Berlin, Germany
Time: 11:30 Europe/Berlin
Date: 21 September 2023
A research and industrial park for urban technologies is being built on the former Tegel Airport site: the Urban Tech Republic. With this plot of land Berlin reclaims a piece of the city and creates spaces for industry, business, and science. What makes it special? The collaborative approach. As an ecosystem and innovation hub, the Urban Tech Republic is intended to be a home for the next generation of innovators, whose primary driver will be collaboration.
The Urban Tech Republic and its residents benefit from the location of the site in the middle of the capital, just 15 minutes from the city center. Berlin is a city in constant flux and everywhere something new is being created. Nowhere else in Germany are there so many motivated and qualified young people. And nowhere else is so much venture capital being invested in the start-up scene.
The Urban Tech Republic has great potential for Berlin. Some 18,000 jobs are expected there, the annual gross value added by Berlin TXL stands at 1.6 billion euros which for the city of Berlin as a whole means a gross value added of 2.6 billion euros with an effective tax amount of about 160 million euros.
Places on this trip are strictly limited. On-site catering will be provided. Registrations are accepted on a first-come-first-serve basis.
