Asia-Pacific Week Berlin 2019

APW 2019

Connecting Startup Cities Conference



May 14, 2019
Venue: Spreewerkstätten, Am Krögel 2, 10179 Berlin

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.
