The hype surrounding Berlin’s tech scene exploded in 2011, as the German capital became a byword for Europe’s startup scene. But the buzz was built on a solid foundation, and Berlin’s technology sector has been growing in importance and influence over the past ten years. Located at the heart of Europe’s biggest economy, scores of businesses from around the world are flocking to the continent’s most fashionable destination.
But what is the truth behind Berlin’s digital community? What’s going on, what’s hot, where is the future headed? To help shed some light on these questions, especially for foreign companies – most of all in the UK – interested in learning more about Berlin, Silicon Allee has joined forces with the re:publica conference and UKTI, the British body promoting international trade, to present a free webinar on Monday, March 10 at 4pm CET, 3pm in the UK.
Titled ‘Into The Wild of Berlin’s Booming Economy’, the webinar – the first in a series of three – will discuss what the city’s digital community looks like, with Geraldine de Bastion of re:publica, one of Europe’s best tech conferences and a leading part of Berlin Web Week, and Schuyler Deerman, Silicon Allee co-founder and formerly of Moped.
Also on webinar will be Fee Beyer, program manager of Deutsche Telekom’s hub:raum startup incubator and accelerator, who will examine how corporates and established businesses are engaging Berlin’s entrepreneurial community.
Finally, Mark Turrell, founder and CEO of Orcasci, will look at the effect technologies can have on creating changes within societies and at governmental levels, and how Berlin has been important in that process.
You can sign up for free here, and get in early because participant numbers are limited. We will be broadcasting from the British Embassy here in Berlin, and there will be ample opportunity for Q&A from those watching after the speakers.
