Today, women make a significant contribu- reliaBle anD ProVen tion to creating new jobs and fostering the dynamism and innovativeness of the Berlin economy. And yet, women are still not equally represented in the political realm nor in top management positions. In fact, women’s hourly wage is still more than one-fifth lower than men’s, and women will once again work “for free” until March 18th in 2019. This is something we need to work together to change! After all, Berlin is the capital of female founders. More women start their all eXaMS own company in Berlin than in any other German city. Berlin owes many aspects of its booming GraDeS 1–13 economy to the work of female entrepreneurs. At this moment, you are holding a very special issue of Berlin to go in your hand – one devoted entirely to women. Milena Glimbovski, for example, is 28-year-old entrepreneur who opened Berlin’s first zero-packaging supermarket in 2014 and was named Berlin’s Female Entrepreneur of the Year 2018/2019 (page 8). Another female innovator, Verena Pausder, started a company called Fox & Sheep, which offers apps that introduce children all over the globe to the digital world in a Schooling paths at KANT For more than 50 years the state recognised all day schools of Private Kant-Schulen have been a generator of inspiration on Berlin’s educational scene. Open mindedness, friendly atmosphere and individual support of students are qualities we highly value. Learn more about us, our concepts, staff and modern facilities at one of our information events.

Successful women have always been role models – for other women and but also for men. In Berlin, we have many highly impressive female role models. They inspire girls and women to pursue careers, to seize the opportunities offered by digitalization and to start their own businesses. Milena Glimbovski, Verena Pausder and Ute Franke are only three of many successful women bosses whose extraordinary ideas and commitment shape the city every day. Let’s work together to make women’s achievements more visible and bring women forward even further!

At roughly 149,253, the number of Berliners without a job fell below the 150,000 mark for the first time in decades. The Governing Mayor of Berlin, Michael Müller, welcomed the most recent labor market figures: “At no time since German reunification has unemployment in Berlin been as low as in October 2018. It’s a tremendous success for everyone who lives and works in the city. We also have the strongest population growth of all federal states in Germany. This proves that Berlin is continuing to make the most out of its favorable economic conditions, especially thanks to the Senate’s effective economic and labor market policies.” Berlin is at the top of the list in terms of female professors. In fact, 45% of all professorships here are held by women. This puts the capital city clearly above the national average. Nationwide, only roughly 24% of professorships are held by women. This year, 223 positions were advertised in Berlin, 45% of which were filled with female professors. According to the Senate Chancellery, that number was still at 40 in 2017; in 2016, it was only 29%. By the end of September 2018, a total of 47% of newly appointed professorships at Berlin’s three large universities and the Charité University Hospital went out to female academics. At the city’s four art colleges, the share was 58%; and at the four state-run technical colleges, it was 37%. On January 1, 2019, Angeliki Krisilion was appointed to the board of directors of the Investitionsbank Berlin (IBB) representing the company’s risk management unit. She will replace Dr. Stephan Brandt, who has been holding the position on an interim basis since September 1, 2018, following the departure of Sonja Kardorf. “In Angeliki Krisilion, we were able to attract an experienced professional to the IBB board. She has tremendous expertise in the areas of risk management, credit risk controlling and analysis,” explains Ramona Pop, Mayor of Berlin and Senator for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises and chair of the IBB board of directors. “She won us over with her expertise, in-depth knowledge of banking regulations and clear and assertive manner, and she will no doubt bring the IBB forward and thus also foster Berlin as a business location.” Roughly 95% of Berlin companies describe their economic situation as “good” or “satisfactory.” These are the findings of the economic survey of more than 1,200 companies undertaken every fall by the Handwerkskammer Berlin and IHK Berlin. The good mood among companies is clouded only by the increasing shortage of skilled workers. As IHK Berlin managing director Jan Eder noted, “Berlin companies and their markets are growing rapidly. And yet, the business location is not growing fast enough alongside it. More and more companies are reporting growth risks due to a shortage of space and skilled workers, but also a lack of transport and digital solutions. Berlin needs to work on its structural fitness as a business location, and the Senate needs to invest in infrastructure and education while also securing and developing commercial space. Otherwise, the economic boom will peter out.” Berlin’s “Gleichstellung gewinnt” (Equality wins) campaign now boasts even more high-level support. Senator Dilek Kolat recently joined with Charité CEO Karl Max Einhäupl to sign the “Gleichstellung gewinnt” charter, which seeks to foster a new corporate culture in Berlin. The Charité university hospital is a major employer in Berlin and already known for its commitment to gender equality. Initiatives include offers designed to facilitate the compatibility of work and family, the targeted promotion of young female scientists and the issue of sexual harassment prevention in the workplace. The Charité is clearly committed to a corporate culture of equality between women and men – in line with the “Gleichstellung gewinnt” campaign. Siemens AG has sent out a strong signal in favor of Germany as an industrial location and Berlin as a capital of innovation. With an investment of over €600 million, the company is set to work together with local and state administrators to develop a new city district in Siemensstadt, a historical site that continues to embody urban modernity by linking working, living and recreational spaces. The project will generate synergies through the interplay of science and business, all of which will be leveraged in specific fields of innovation and technology that are key to Siemens and Berlin. These joint efforts will strengthen Berlin’s status as an industrial location and also foster it along its path to becoming a Smart City. 7 TITLE WASTE NOT, WANT NOT 8 Milena Glimbovski was named Berlin’s Female Entrepreneur of the Year for her “Original Unverpackt” supermarket  Text: Christin Berges Fotos: © Christian Kielmann, © Original & unverpackt Milena Glimbovski offers over 600 unpackaged items in her supermarket We’ve all been there. After a trip to the supermarket on Saturday, you come home with a week’s worth of groceries and prepare a delicious evening meal for the whole family. However, in addition to empty plates and full bellies, what’s left is a heap of packaging that includes the net the potatoes were in, the plastic wrap that covered the cucumber, the bag that held the walnuts, etc. One sight of all this waste is enough to satiate your conscience with guilt. Milena Glimbovski is all too familiar with this. us ill. When she was a student in her early 20s, her friend cooked her a meal one evening, and after they had finished eating, Milena once again become irritated by the resulting garbage bag full of plastic. That night, the two friends came up with the idea to open a supermarket that didn’t use any packaging. They envisaged how they would offer people nuts, rice and gummy bears in large containers. Their customers would bring jam jars and cloth bags and fill them with the exact amount of food they needed from the dispensers.

She also now has many imitators: as of today, there are more than 50 “Unverpackt” supermarkets in Germany. As of November 2018, Milena Glimbovski can also call herself “Berlin’s Female Entrepreneur of the Year 2018/2019.” As the first-prize winner in that competition, she received a trophy and funds totaling €3,000, which she no doubt will invest in her latest projects, for which 10 A cloth bag for a zero-waste lifestyle Female founders see digitalization as having a lesser influence on their business model Source: Female Founders Monitor, 2018 11 TITLE MADE TO MEASURE In 2014, when revenues in aviation R&D shif- her passion and experience in the world of avi- ted to production, FTI reacted accordingly and ation and flight theory led her to become part reduced its R&D projects to focus more on pro- of the multicultural team – roughly 450 en- duction.

The structure, which today houses the Tropical Island resort, was headquarters of the airship company Cargolifter AG until 2002. Out of curiosity, Ute Franke contacted Cargolifter to inquire as to what they were planning – and soon found herself in the middle of a job interview. This marked the start of her career in aviation and also provided the eventual foundation for her own company. 12 Although she had never worked in the industry, the experience Ute Franke had garnered in department at FTI had been carrying out on the project management and the aerospace indus- surfaces of aircraft wings. try would determine her future career path.

For example, for clients in the film industry, 5micron developed a special technique that allows archived film material from the 1920s and 1930s to be “diagnosed” using dark-field diagnostics.

What kinds of content – whether online, on tablets or on mobile phones – provide the most age-appropriate fun while also being educationally valuable? This is a question that Verena Pausder was also asking herself in 2011. Soon thereafter, she founded and became managing director of the Berlin app studio Fox & Sheep, a company that specializes in high-quality children’s apps designed to foster playful learning and exploration. The studio has received numerous awards for its lovingly animated and illustrated products, including “App of the Year” and “#1 iPad App in Germany.” Today, it is the largest developer of children’s apps in Germany; its over 20 million downloads also rank it among the top ten providers on the European app market. In other words, Verena Pausder is one of the most successful international tech founders. In fact, entrepreneurship is in her blood. She comes from the Delius textile dynasty in Bielefeld and founded a sushi bar at the age of 20 together with her sister. At the time, she was studying business administration at the University of St. Gallen, and after completing her degree, she founded Delius Capital. In 2006, McKinsey named her a “CEO of the Future,” and in 2016, she was named a “Young Global Leader” at the World Economic Forum. In 2018, she made it to Forbes Europe’s Top 50 Women in Tech list. Born in Hamburg, she launched an initiative called “Startup Teens” and is a member of the board of trustees of the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft. She is a consultant on the German federal government’s Innovation Council and the initiator of the Ladies Dinner, a Germany-wide network of female entrepreneurs in the media industry.  17 TITLE “LOOKING BACK, I’M VERY HAPPY I DARED TO FO UND THE COMPANY” YOU ARE A MOTHER OF THREE CHILDREN.

Sie folgen ihrem Besitzer auf Schritt und Tritt und machen, was Herrchen will. Naja, meistens jedenfalls. Vom Wolf stammt der Hund ab, auch wenn bei einem Zwergpinscher oder dem Chihuahua, der kleinsten Hunderasse der Welt, nicht mehr allzu viel darauf schließen lässt. Obwohl die vermeintlichen Schoßhündchen durchaus Kampfeslust unter Beweis stellen. Bei gefährlichen Rassen wie etwa Pitbulls sind Konflikte in der Koexistenz von Hund und Mensch ohnehin vorprogrammiert. Die Berliner Beißstatistik aber erstaunt. Von den 2017 gemeldeten 584 durch Hunde hervorgerufenen Verletzungen bei Menschen gingen nur 39 auf das Konto der „gefährlichen“ Rassen, aber 149 auf das von Mischlingen. 105.543 Hunde waren laut Statistik der Finanzämter 2017 in Berlin gemeldet.
