About us

Business and innovation are at the forefront of our activities - we want to rethink the economy and make Duisburg a strong business location. External values are just as important to us as the standards we as DBI set for ourselves and our work. You can find out more about our corporate purpose and philosophy here.

Hand in hand with the city, we focus on the (inter)national marketing of Duisburg as a business location. In doing so, we lead the way in economic development and convince others of Duisburg as a valuable and promising business location.

Our task

The focus of our work, our ideas, matching platforms and projects is the creation of additional jobs in Duisburg. Our task: a valuable and international marketing of Duisburg in HUBs. We see ourselves as economic development with a service function for Duisburg companies. By building "innovation bridges" in the international field, we create new markets and increase the perception and image of the business location.

Our role

We are team players, impulse givers and doers for Duisburg. Together with our network, the shareholders and the City of Duisburg, we recognize and leverage the potential of the location. How? By developing new projects in order to create new strengths and to present them to the outside world in a focused and high-profile manner. We identify the right focal points and turn them into valuable projects for the companies.

Our way of working

Our colleagues have many years of expertise and are specialists in their field. Their knowledge of the location and their network contacts give DBI the opportunity to work in an agile, self-directed and flexible manner on projects that are beneficial for the location. Agile work in HUBs and cross-HUB collaboration in teams generate projects that move Duisburg forward. Promoting Duisburg as a location and its competitiveness is not just our job, it's our passion. But DBI's duties to its employees are also important to us. Because only in a holistically conceived work environment with appreciation, family friendliness, self-directed work and a high degree of flexibility can everyone do justice to the tasks of DBI in the best possible way.
