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 second time in a row, the hybrid Summit will take 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 will have 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.
“Three things are changing the world radically- Technology, the business model behind it, and Asia. 60% of the world population is living in Asia. It’s young, it wants to grow, and we need to bring Europe and Asia together to help each other. The Asia Berlin Summit is perfect for that. Because even in times of COVID, we have to come closer together to help each other rather than being apart.”
Cedrik Neike, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens and CEO Smart Infrastructure
” The Berlin ecosystem is diverse; we have people from 52 nationalities and 40% women in the team. I don’t think the challenges that were there seven years ago in Berlin exist anymore. If you’re thinking of moving to Berlin and building a business — I would be very strongly supportive of it as a fantastic ecosystem. You stand on the backbone of strong German infrastructure, stable government, good health care systems for families. I would encourage startup founders to think of Berlin as a startup ecosystem.”
Naren Shaam, CEO and Founder, Omio GmbH
“As a diverse, as a young, innovative and international city, with a growing and English-speaking startup ecosystem, Berlin is the strongest partner for Asia and the European Union, even more so since Brexit.”
Ramona Pop, Berlin Mayor and Senator for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises
