Attracting founders and new venture capital alike, Berlin has become one of the most vibrant startup hubs worldwide. Entrepreneurs are fostering innovations in various fields. During this tour you will get an insight into two of today’s recent trends in the startup scene. The Internet of Things (IoT) is about to change not only our everyday life but also industrial production and economies. The increasing networking of electronic devices, such as wearables and sensors, facilitates human-to- machine as well as machine-to-machine communication, therefore paving the way to Industry 4.0. Other smart applications are aiming to make our homes more convenient and our cities more liveable. Startups have contributed significantly to the emergence of the IoT, constantly inventing and developing innovative smart technologies and products.

The second part of the tour will focus on a business model that has attracted growing attention in recent years. In light of increased awareness of the impact of climate change and social inequality, social entrepreneurship aims to combine sustainable management with fair trade and profitability. These start-ups offer solutions for a greener and more sustainable lifestyle, encouraging equality, inclusion and a circular economy.

This Going Global startup tour takes you to startups or institutions that are contributing to Berlin’s vibrant innovation scene in the areas of IoT and Entrepreneurship. Meet the experts and get an exclusive insight into the startup landscape!
