Located in the heart of Europe

As the largest economy of the European Union, Germany stands for innovation and high levels of productivity. The reunited Germany has taken on a key role in the growing single European market and is a global leader in several industrial and technological sectors.

Berlin’s place at the heart of Europe, together with its excellent infrastructure, outstanding research landscape and enormous business opportunities make the German capital and its environs such a perfect location for IBMI.

Located in the center of Berlin

IBMI is centrally located at Friedrichstraße in Berlin. The famous street is the capital’s most important north-south axis and runs in a straight line through the popular districts Berlin-Mitte and Berlin-Kreuzberg.

During the Cold War the street was bisected by the Berlin Wall and was the location of famous Checkpoint Charlie. Today, the street is home to educational institutions, cafes, shops, theaters and other places of entertainment.

Shaping our Future

Since 2019, IBMI is operated from Impact Hub Berlin, Factory Berlin Mitte as well as Factory Berlin Görlitzer Park. The Impact Hub and Factory networks create a thriving innovation ecosystem where people collaborate to solve the grand challenges of our time.

The world’s greatest challenges will never be solved by one organization alone. As networks for social innovation and economic growth, the Impact Hub and Factory connect and enable changemakers to develop new ideas.
