The AsiaBerlin Summit offers a platform to establish an international startup ecosystem between Berlin and Asia. We focus on the internationalization of startups across sectors such as Smart Cities/UrbanTech, HealthTech, FinTech, industry 4.0, AI, and Blockchain. This year, the hybrid Summit took place offline and online to talk about new trends and cross-border collaboration between Asia and Berlin.
Besides expert panels and keynotes by investors and startups on Day 1 and 2 — we had an Embassy Day program planned in partnership with various embassies of Asian countries complemented by cultural programs as well as satellite events during the Summit.
“If a company wants to invest in Berlin, you can find talented people who have a good understanding of the international network. I think Berlin is the perfect place to expand into Europe.”
Dr. Feiyu X, Vice President, Global Head of Artificial Intelligence, SAP
“As someone representing Female Entrepreneurship in the Berlin Startup Ecosystem, it is a great discussion culturally on how to find opportunities in the Asian markets. At the AsiaBerlin Summit (formerly APW), I met a diverse audience like never before. People from different age groups and cultures were well represented.”
Kaddie Rothe, Co-founder, Goal Girls, Berlin
“The AsiaBerlin Summit is a very good format, especially to know more about countries where we are not traveling on a regular basis such as the Philippines, Malaysia, or Asia. You can find innovative ideas, meet startups, get to know other companies who are on the same journey as yours. I am also interested to know how Berlin is evolving at a startup city”
