Berlin is THE start-up capital in Germany and a start-up hot spot in Europe. Photonics and other Deep Technologies are strong in Berlin but starting a company in such a high tech field still remains challenging. The start-up ecosystem in Berlin nowadays is highly professionalized and holds ample opportunities for those who dare…

With the start-up program we want to inform PhD students, PhDs and Post Docs in Photonics and other deep tech from Berlin that starting a company is possible and can be fun too. We invite start-ups, established companies, Business Angels and VCs as well as law firms and university support structures to the Seminar to present their cases, challenges and lessens learned and to indicate support opportunities.
