Survey of medium-sized businesses 2016

The SME Survey 2016 was conducted from August to September on behalf of Berliner Sparkasse / Landesbank Berlin. The responses of 1,200 representatives of small and medium-sized companies from the region were evaluated.

In the context of this survey, the companies were asked about the currently prevailing business climate and their future expectations regarding obstacles, challenges and investment and financing plans.

The 2016 SME survey also covered Brexit and the possible employment of refugees. This year, the digitisation of the economy was selected as a current focus topic as a global issue with substantial local effects, and for the first time, the consequences for companies in the capital region were highlighted (see focus analysis).
