In recent years, Berlin has become one of the world’s most important startup capitals and is now arguably on par with major hubs like London and New York.

Digital Vol.4


Berlin is changing fast. Fuelled by Brexit, the city has seen a spike in interest in recent years. Although the German capital is still affordable compared to other major cities across the globe, rent rates are undoubtedly rising. Still, Berlin’s makeup is rapidly evolving and its startup scene is maturing and becoming more attractive to international investors.

That’s why Startup Guide Berlin is back for the fourth time to deliver a fresh dose of info, insights and case studies to empower and inspire entrepreneurs to kick-start their ideas.

Startup Guide Berlin Vol. 3 & 4 are filled with city-focused tips, startups, coworking spaces, programs and interviews with founders as well as experts. It gives you all the information you need to get you started in the German city.
