openBerlin is one of nine Cisco Innovation Centers worldwide, with a focus is mainly on manufacturing, logistics and transportation.

openBerlin helps local and global organizations improve business outcomes by helping them with their digitization journey. As an innovation center and workplace for customers, partners, startups, universities, and developer communities, they’re doing this in three ways:

  • Solve business problems and help creating new markets and transformational digital business opportunities
  • Engaging in rapid solution and product prototyping
  • Researching and investing in local resources, including companies, people and startups

Together with its partner ecosystem, openBerlin provides access to technology expertise, development equipment, investment funds, joint marketing, and rapid prototyping. Working with Cisco, customers can take full advantage of the infrastructure they have and introduce new capabilities and technology solutions as needed.

openBerlin is not an incubator, a classic accelerator or company builder. It is meant to function as an open digital hub. With Cisco’s global reach, openBerlin is a gateway for German companies to address global markets.
