The Big Berlin Breakdown: January 28 – February 3

By David Knight |

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. And this week we have a special offer for our readers.


Anyone in Berlin’s will tell that events are a key feature here – as this column shows! And now leading ticket platform Eventbrite has taken note and established a physical presence in the German capital. Tuesday night will see the startup get together with the key actors of the Berlin event scene during a casual evening with freed food and drink at betahaus. Prinzessinnenstrasse 19, from 7pm.

This is an exclusive invitation-only event – but in a special offer for Silicon Allee readers, simply send us an email to team at and you could be in with a chance of grabbing a ticket!

The regular Berlin Hack and Tell meet up takes place at c-base Raumstation and aims to showcase what the hacks of the future will look like. You can demo any cool stuff, no matter if it’s a mobile app, website, desktop program or library – but it should be something no one has ever seen before. You get five minutes to present your work (in English) using demos and code to a technologically-savvy audience. At Rungestrasse 20, from 6.30-11.30pm.


The Health 2.0 Berlin Meet Up will see four presentations looking at the latest in health tech, including on the innovation happening in Scandinavia, a report on the Health 2.0 landscape in the German-speaking world, a presentation of the startup Machfit and a discussion of consumer health application VitaDock. There will also be a chance for networking. At betahaus, from 6.30pm.


The first batch of companies in the hub:raum accelerator have come to the end of their program and will celebrate with this special, invite-only graduation event. The eight intensive weeks of hard work have seen them hone their products and business plans, and all 15 will now get a chance to present their projects to a select audience. At betahaus, from 2-7pm.

Sold out

Also on Tuesday there is the latest Berlin TEDx event, a Salon entitled Mobilizing Society which takes place at Soho House. See the TEDx Berlin website for more details, and for info on upcoming events.
