The Big Berlin Breakdown: June 24 – 30

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.


The regular Berlin Hack and Tell meet up takes place at c-base Raumstation, this month sponsored by Sourcefabric. 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 6.30-10.30pm.


Co-Found Berlin is a meet up to help potential co-founders find each other. It attempts to create an environment where you can make the right connections and form a great startup team. It’s open to everyone – aspiring entrepreneurs, business people, freelancers, hackers and others. Sign up and more info here. From 6pm, at the Hotel Amano Rooftop Terrace.


FridayatSix is back – this month’s edition of the startup talk show, hosted as ever by Derk Marseille, comes from the offices of CiteeCar in Mitte. The hour-long show will include a discussion on tech-enabled collaborative consumption with Bill Jones of CiteeCar and Jay Cousins of Open Design City and MakersLab, a talk with Waymate co-founder Maxim Nohroudi, new startup pitches, an open mic segment and, of course, live music. Tickets are free but limited and include pizza and beer. At Rosa-Luxemburg-Strasse 19, from 7.30-10.30pm.


Finding the usual meet ups a little boring? Yearning for a few extra thrills in your life? Then check out the Epic Race, the self-proclaimed fastest startup event in Berlin. Organised by Ploonge and Epiclist, it’s a go kart race where you can form a team to challenge for the winner’s trophy. More info here. At Kartland at Miraustrasse 62-66, from 5pm.
