Strength for Berlin in numbers – the many faces of IBB Business Team GmbH

With our funding schemes, we are making Berlin future-ready. We are increasing the competitiveness of companies, doing our bit to renovate existing properties and implementing measures to help Berliners improve their quality of life.

Since our inception in 1997, we have grown with our mission and today run ten different schemes and projects on behalf of the State of Berlin and Investitionsbank Berlin (IBB). In addition to funding activities, we also act as a service provider for Investitionsbank Berlin where we are dedicated colleagues at reception, in the communication hub and in the post room.

Excellent work only comes about with an excellent team that pursues and achieves ambitious goals with outstanding drive and responsibility. That's why under our roof, collaboration is shaped by reliability, trust, a human touch and mutual respect. We are constantly working to improve our services, responding to all incoming enquiries professionally and as quickly as possible, and providing you with a professional level of service in all matters – for a better Berlin, together.
