Does the Berlin tech scene have a social etiquette problem?
Cate Lawrence

I know exactly what you are talking about. I moved to Berlin from Stockholm. The Nordics is not known for their friendliness, but within the start-up scene or at tech events, networking is not a problem. To be honest, I get the impression that most people are not genuine or confident in their standing within the scene, so lean on those they know, see & be seen, to feel validated. I have yet to attend an event here that has provided much value… but the flyer graphics and promises within the copy are consistently beyond well-done… perhaps that tells us something: appearances are of higher value than true connections and progress in Berlin.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
