Berlin has established itself as one of the top startup hubs in Europe. The German capital records more than 40 thousand startups, translating into one of the highest startup to inhabitant ration. Over the past few years, over 50 corporate accelerators and other special programmes, such as Lufthansa, Metro, SAP, IBM, Viessmann, Volkswagen, Daimler, Cisco and Bosch, have moved their innovation hubs to Berlin and stimulate innovation in the industrial sector. Public support has been growing through venture funds and cheap loans for startups, boosting around €10 billion for startup subsidies.
This Deep Dive Week is targeted at Industrial IoT startups looking to scale in Berlin.
Applications will open on F6S on 2 July and close on 20 July – stay tuned!
