Win 2 Tickets to the Geeks on a Plane at the Factory!

Step out onto the balcony here at Silicon Allee and you can see the Factory’s main building taking shape before your very eyes. The old structure is being transformed, with Berlin’s first genuine tech epicentre due to open next year.

And you can sneak a little glimpse at how things are coming along this Saturday in the company of Dave McClue and his Geeks on a Plane – if you’re one of the lucky invitees, that is. But if you’re not, don’t worry! Silicon Allee is giving away TWO free tickets to the event.

Just leave your contact details in the comment section below by 5pm on Thursday, and we’ll select the two lucky winners at random.

The event, organised in conjunction with the Pirate Summit, will see 140 entrepreneurs and investors get up close and personal with the GOAP. It takes place from 1-5pm at the Factory site on Rheinsberger Strasse in Mitte and there will be a pitch contest along with a panel discussion talking about Berlin’s ecosystem, featuring big hitters like Felix Petersen of AmenReadmill‘sHenrik Berggren and 6Wunderkinder founder Christian Reber. There will also be a chance to network and to tour the Factory.

So get commenting!

Please remember to leave your full name and contact details, and check Silicon Allee’s Twitter and Facebook to see if you’ve won.
