Asia-Pacific Week Berlin 2019

APW 2019

Connecting Startup Cities Conference

May 14, 2019
Venue: Alte Münze

The “Berlin Buzz” and Asia
What with heavyweights like Soundcloud, Zalando and Delivery Hero already under its belt, the German capital is looking to conquer Europe with
a buzzing startup community full of young, hungry techies and relatively affordable housing.
In the German capital, over 18 percent of the population is foreign-born, representing approximately an astonishing 190 countries (especially considering that there are a total of 195 countries in the world today). Many founders and employees of startups don´t speak German and are thus creating an English speaking ecosystem. This intense ecosystem is famed to be a hub for innovative types to create, network and experiment.
The one-day Connecting Startup Cities conference on May 14, 2019, boasts an international scope that addresses precisely these startups, bringing together established companies, innovation labs, VCs, accelerators, science partners, political decision-makers, and institutional actors from Germany and Asia. By offering a platform for dialogue, knowledge exchanges, networking, and matchmaking, the conference is fast becoming the interface for the initiation and development of international relations – Asia meets Europe. It will take place within the framework of the Asia-Pacific Week in Berlin from May 13-19, 2019. With more than 90 speakers, 50 different talk formats and a total of more than 2.000 visitors the Asia-Pacific Week in 2018 was a raging success.
