It has been awfully quiet on the blog since June because I have been working on the very time consuming Startup Guide Berlin book with Sissel Hansen (Project founder), Rita Braz (Photography & Design), Inês Pedro (Local Manager), Patrik Winkler (Business development) and Lukas Habltzel (Website design). I did a lot of interviews with interesting entrepreneurs and founders contributing several articles and start up portraits for the book. The Berlin Startup Guide will be released with an edition of 3000 this friday and I’m very happy to be a part of this project.
I’m very excited to contribute stories about great startups like Sygns who produce amazing neon light installations, Michelberger who own the only Hotel in Berlin that feels like a friends home, Somewhere, where you can share how you work, Patience who empower people to build their own e-learning platforms and many more people with great ideas.
I’m very happy that I’ve got the chance to meet inspiring founders like Ansgar Oberholz, who is bringing inspiring people together in a great environment, Christoph Fahle who explained his Betahaus co-working vision for me, Morgan Stanley who showed me how the Agora co-working space functions and what it means to connect people, Yatan Blumenthal from the Food Assembly who is working on building new consumer-food relationships and Mario Paladini from Club Globals who is an amazing connector and in general great fun to be around. All the interviews meant a great deal to me and I’m grateful that all those people took the time to share their stories with me.
