Promotion and Financing Berlin-Brandenburg supports the area of design and usability through a transnational economic policy in the ICT, media, and creative industries cluster. The dense offering of consulting, financing, and targeted promotion creates a unique environment for settlements, startups, and innovative projects. The two economic development agencies of Berlin and Brandenburg provide information about the various promotion and financing options. The Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Energy, and Business and the Brandenburg Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy support the industry with grants and loans for property investments, labor costs, or technology-oriented R&D projects, as well as through infrastructure projects, networking, funding competitions, and expo appearances.
