Retrospect APW 2016

We are looking back at successful Asia-Pacific Weeks and the Asia-Europe Innovation Dialogue which focussed on the topic of startups this year.

During 12 days more than 1,000 guests attended the 100+ APW events. Especially the opening event, Embassy Day and the conference Connecting Startup Cities enabled effective networking and provided starting points for collaboration. A cooperation agreement between the startup hubs Berlin and Shanghai was signed. And a new startup network between Berlin, Manila, Jakarta and Bangalore was launched: Starthubs AsiaBerlin. In this context APW partner events in the three Asian cities are planned for October 2016. A special highlight of the first week was also the pitching session.

Please refer to the following links for pictures and videos of the conference days.

Thank you for your great interest and participation. Special thanks goes to our sponsors, partners and supporters.

New: APW 2017

May 15 - 28, 2017

The thematic focus of the conference program will be digitization in 2017, as part of which the Embassy Day and the multi-day conference Connecting Startup Cities will be continued.

We look forward to seeing you again next year when numerous experts from Asia and Europe will meet for the Innovation Dialogue in Berlin!
