Sponsorship Association of the DGAP

Companies and individuals who support us can become part of DGAP and benefit from our expertise by joining the Sponsorship Association. Members of DGAP’s Sponsorship Association e.V. get the opportunity to actively participate in a regular exchange with political decision-makers on the most important geopolitical and geo-economic developments. This exchange will allow both sides to (re-)act more strategically and be better prepared in case of unexpected geopolitical or geo-economic turmoil.

In times when political and economic measures are becoming increasingly interlinked, this exchange is of particular importance for both sides: Internationally operating companies must increasingly deal with and anticipate political risks, while politicians are faced with the challenge of integrating corporate concerns more strongly into their strategic actions, respectively protecting them against geo-economic attacks. In DGAP's Sponsorship Association, business leaders and policy-makers discuss these topics and work together towards improving Germany’s geo-economic capacity to act.
