Berlin Startup Culture (BSC)

Berlin Startup Culture is a weekly meetup group where the Berlin tech startup community comes together to drink, work, discuss and network. We meet at different locations across town each week. Mostly at a start-up office, co-working space or a bar.

Things we do at BSC:

  1. Discuss and dissect new hot consumer and enterprise business models
  2. Listen to experienced founders, product managers, engineers, designers, and networkers talk plain about their experiences, challenges, failures, and successes
  3. Listend to angel on their past deals and how they make investments and syndicate with other angels
  4. Listend to VCs on their future deals and how they make investments and syndicate with other investors
  5. Build Hacker-MBA-tandems; in a Hacker-MBA-tandem, a hacker teaches an MBA how to code and the MBA teaches the hacker MBA essentials. Tandems present their progress every fortnight.
  6. Do live hackathons in start-ups, hospitals, orphan homes, schools, jails, nursing homes, kindergartens, courts, government offices, etc.
