The Big Berlin Breakdown: January 21 – 27

By Claire Adamson |

Check out Silicon Allee’s weekly rundown of all the best events going on in our fair city: what’s happening, what’s coming up and what may be of interest whether you be investor, entrepreneur or hacker.


GameDuell will hold its first Tech Talk of 2013 tonight featuring Jeanfrancois Arcand of Atmosphere Framework. From 7pm at the GameDuell HQ near Hausvogteiplatz.


If you aren’t going to the sold-out Europas on Tuesday night, there are plenty of other tech events in Berlin for you. The Berlin Tech Salon offers hackers and developers a laid-back forum to show off their latest projects and hacks and enjoy a quiet beer or two. From 7:30pm, sign up for the location.

The Startup Berlin Meetup, meanwhile, is an informal gathering of founders and entrepreneurs with the chance to network over a glass of wine or two. From 7pm at Webworker Berlin, entry is €6.


Ploonge and turnYourTime have joined forces this month to host Startup Pizza. Attendees will be put in groups of three and will have twenty minutes to invent a mobile app that encapsulates the skills of the team members. There will be vodka, beer and of course pizza, with plenty of opportunities for networking along the way. From 7:30pm at Kommerzpunk.


The Berlin Tech Meetup will showcase some very cool companies in Berlin with a focus on the technologies they are using and developing. It is currently sold out, but you can add yourself to the waiting list and hope for the best. From 7:30pm.

B Mobile V – Loc@Yoc is also happening on Thursday night, and will feature talks about location based services and mobile topics. Admission is free but you need to sign up on the website. From 7pm at Yoc HQ.


Friday at 6 hits the airwaves for the first time in 2013, and the resultant party at Halle am Wasser should be a great way to wind down after a busy week. From 8pm.
