A successful start-up location depends on networking between universities, start-ups, investors, politics and established companies. Berlin not only provides opportunities for exchange by numerous networks and founder events, there are also vital hot spots distributed throughout the city which facilitate contact between young entrepreneurs. The sector knows where to meet: the cafes St. Oberholz, Mein Haus am See or the Soho House in Berlin-Mitte.

In Berlin, young entrepreneurs find the best opportunities for education and advanced training to guide them at all stages of business development. Berlin’s universities and institutions of higher education provide their own start-up networks. The university-based start-up centers connect to each other via B!gründet, the start-up network of Berlin’s institutions of higher education.
