BW_i is well connected in Baden-Württemberg and across the globe.

Our many years of experience mean that we are a strong partner for your internationalisation needs. Founded in 1984 under the name “Exportstiftung Baden-Württemberg” by the state government of the time, we were renamed 20 years later to “Baden-Württemberg International – Gesellschaft für internationale wirtschaftliche und wissenschaftliche Zusammenarbeit mbH”. Today, roughly 70 employees with extensive experience on foreign markets, in international project management and in attracting businesses work at the headquarters in the state capital city, Stuttgart.

Alongside our shareholders from politics and business and our supervisory board, we also have the support of two advisory boards comprising business and science experts. All of these bodies lend support to our projects with their diverse expertise. In addition, we work with a strong network of partners.

We have our own international office in the People’s Republic of China. Our China-based office is in Nanjing and has links to an extensive network of stakeholders from business and politics thanks to the long-standing partnership between Jiangsu Province and Baden-Württemberg. The office assists small and medium-size companies in gaining access to the Chinese market.

BW_i is a member of the WIN-Charter of the State of Baden-Württemberg and is thus committed to the principles of sustainable and responsible governance. In our annual sustainability reports, we provide information on the main aspects of our sustainability strategy.
