About this event

Berlin is the capital of Germany, a city of modern technology, history and culture, and the hometown of Siemens. It is world class in culture, politics, media, and science, and its major industries include information technology, pharmaceuticals, bioengineering, biotechnology, optics and electronics, transportation engineering and renewable energy.

Shenzhen, China's youngest first-tier city, boasts a complete manufacturing supply chain and distribution network, home to Tencent, one of the world's largest Internet companies, and numerous technology companies, known as China's "silicon valley".

Both Berlin and Shenzhen have been dubbed the Silicon Valley of their continents. But how do these cities compare? What are the main differences in how the two startup ecosystems function, and how can the cities fill each other’s gaps by cooperating?

Come to this event to meet the delegates of StartUp AsiaBerlin – a multilateral entrepreneurship platform that aims to connect the startup hubs in Asia with Berlin and each other. Join us for a panel discussion and an international networking session!
