This is where we will post our weekly events for you, the digital community of Berlin. From weekly startup pitches, to panels and fireside chats with international founders, this meetup group is to give you the opporunity to learn and network at the same time.
As companies, we tend to talk a lot about diversity, but that means nothing without inclusion. A lot of great companies are failing at this.
That's why at APX, we gathered some influencers on this topic, and we're bringing them together for one night! 🙌
There are going to be TWO panels happening on March 21st, that's right, two! 😱 Both panels will be on two different topics around inclusion. We'll start at 7pm sharp, and run the first panel until 8pm, then have a 10-minute break before coming back for panel two until 9:15pm.
We promise it's going to be a lot of brain food 🧠

New technologies, digital tools and business models are changing the property landscape. Nevertheless, the property sector has proven to be quite resistant to these disruptive changes: too complex, too diverse. In which areas of the real estate life cycle would PropTech be the most beneficial?
Our panel will discuss the ever-changing property lifecycle, the challenges that lie ahead as well opportunities.
Doors open at 19:00.
Networking until 19:30 followed by an expert roundtable and Q&A.

Pitch Tuesdays is our weekly startup showcase, where APX portfolio founders will pitch for their ideas and the companies’ current status. This is an opportunity for them to excel in their public speaking skills and receive feedback from a public audience as part of the 100 days investor ready program.
We often have visits from Master’s students, partners, investors, and employees from our shareholders: Axel Springer and Porsche. The best part? You can take part in it! This is valuable training for the APX portfolio founders, opportunities for our portfolio companies to gather insightful feedback, and also a great networking opportunity for you!
Swing by our offices for a drink, see the pitches, and vote for your favourite.
