Berlin Startup Ecosystem

Over the past decade, Berlin has become a global hub for startup founders in Europe. It has one of the best funding ecosystems in Europe and funding grew 56% between 2020 and 2021. 

According to EY, German startups received $17.4 billion in 2021, of which 60% went to Berlin-based businesses. Of those deals, 33 were over $100 million. Berlin-based food delivery company Gorillas secured $500 million in 2021, making it Europe’s fastest-growing unicorn. 

Fintech, E-commerce, and mobility companies are the highest percentage of Berlin’s startup businesses. Germany’s population is the biggest in Western Europe, with the highest purchasing power, giving new companies a large market. 

Berlin is an attractive hub for international founders due to the lower cost of living than London and the access to a highly qualified talent pool. The German capital often makes the top spot on lists of best places for tech professionals to relocate. It also isn’t too difficult for talent to relocate to Germany. 

The German government and Berlin state offer plenty of support for startups. From coaching programs to startup scholarships and funding for green startups, the support for fledgling businesses to make it off the ground helps add to Berlin’s appeal. 

Numerous business incubators and the highest concentration of coworking spaces in Germany contribute to a thriving ecosystem.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.

To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
  • Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
