STARTUP SOUNDING OUT MARKET OPPORTUNITIES Start Alliance Berlin is bringing the startup cities of the world closer together while creating new networks Berlin, Tel Aviv, New York, Paris, Los Angeles and Shanghai – what do these cities have in common? A whole lot, but for the startup exchange program Start Alliance Berlin, an initiative by Berlin Partner for Business and Technology, it’s their startup spirit and their strong interest in fresh ideas that set them apart. Berlin entrepreneurs can now pack their bags and swap their work desk for a free coworking space in one of five cities, while Berlin becomes a temporary workplace for startups from other partner cities. The program is currently underway with Tel Aviv, Shanghai and New York, with Berlin’s Governing Mayor Michael Müller as honorary patron. Paris and Los Angeles are still in the preparation phase. Those who manage to gain one of the coveted places get a free coworking space for up to four weeks in a different partner city and are networked within the local ecosystem, giving participants the opportunity to meet potential investors or cooperation partners from within the established industry. Startups considering expansion into foreign markets can size up their plans on location. Jeremie Brabet-Adonajlo, founder of Pzartech, won the first free, 10-day stay in Berlin with a pitch in Tel Aviv last October. At Betabreakfast on a Thursday in April, he presented his 3D printing service to industrial companies. “Germany is an important reference for me as a land of industry. Berlin has emerged as a door opener – in the last few days I’ve been able to speak about innovations with many representatives of large German industrial companies.” During his time in Berlin, Brabet-Adonajlo had conversations with Rolls-Royce, Deutsche Bahn, Daimler and SAP. cb Those who would like to apply to the exchange program can find more information at From New York to Berlin The first ticket for the startup exchange between Berlin and New York City has been awarded. At the beginning of May, the New York founders of OdemGlobal, a planning tool for marketing activities, won over the audience at a pitch event in WeWork’s coworking space in New York. “We’re thrilled to travel to Berlin as the program’s first startup so we can size up our market opportunities there,” says Frank O’Brien of OdemGlobal. In addition to a free coworking space, the entrepreneurs with the winning pitch receive airline tickets and Berlin hotel rooms for two people for ten days. The event was co-organized by Berlin Partner for Business and Technology and the Metro Group. Photos: / alvarez, Berlin Partner 24 BERLIN TO GO
