What are the pros and cons of launching your startup from Berlin?
– Talent and creative people (very international)
– Existing startup eco-system (you can easily get in touch with other startups)
– Still relatively cheap compared to other cities (London, Paris, New York, San Francisco,…)
– Access to investors
– Competition for talent is very intense
– Building a startup gets more and more expensive (salaries, office space, …)
