BW_i brings business and science to the global markets and positions the state as an attractive location internationally – now and in the future.

As a competence centre for the State of Baden-Württemberg for the internationalisation of business and science, we offer numerous services to help the different stakeholders in Germany’s Southwest to branch out into foreign markets. We support companies, universities and research institutions as well as clusters and networks in tapping into foreign markets. We put them in touch with valuable, lasting contacts and facilitate collaboration in the respective target countries.


As part of our location marketing, we position Baden-Württemberg globally as a location for business and science and raise the profile of Europe’s leading innovation region for investors, cooperation partners and talent.  

We also carry out projects in Germany and abroad on behalf of third parties. Thanks to our many years of experience in the area of business and science development, we are a competent partner to ministries and institutions as a project service provider.
