Berlin is always good idea

Truth to be told, Berlin has been amazing to visit for the past ten years — if for fun or for Startup Fair. It’s the reason why we’ve chosen it as one of our three base camps (London — Berlin — Prague). It’s also no surprise that we were not disappointed with our last week’s visit.

It was our last reunion this year and we brought our whole team and some guests to Berlin (except a colleague who just had a newborn the day before). We spent a day in a planning session for 2017. We used hospitality of new WeWork offices at Hackerscher Markt — simply cool and efficient. The evening we spent at Tech Startup Fair at Sony Center meeting people, making new friends and collecting CVs and the next day, Friday, some of us joined a group at Corrective to gain some insight into investigative journalism (you may think it’s not relevant but wait for it…)

Tech Meetups don’t disappoint

We send our great thanks to the team at Tech Meetups. They did a great job of organizing and prepping everyone for the event — us, as exhibitors, as well as visitors — the young talented folks looking for new opportunities.

We all agreed that the talent we met in Berlin was amazing and connections still keep rolling in — THANK YOU ALL! What surprised us most positively was the diversity of talent in terms of nationalities and backgrounds. Berlin — ten points there.

On the other hand we’ve met less technical talent than we expected. Unfortunately, it happens to be usual observation anywhere we go. Our friends from the headhunting business tend to say it’s because strong tech talent does not go anywhere to look for opportunities, opportunities hunt them down without any effort on their part. Probably true and we see another great opportunity in this for Europe and we shall do something about it next year. Berlin — five points there.

But enough talking. We hope to have a small team based in Berlin very soon, working on cool projects. So for now enjoy some visuals…

Enjoy the Storify prepared by Tech Meetups team you’ll find a few pretty good pictures there.

Or you can check out a few of our own pictures on our Instagram feed.

See you soon!
