Here is what participants of Berlin 2.0 say about the unique event.
Berlin 2.0 is clearly one of the key networks to connect with the influencers of Berlin's tech scene. In reality, this is a very vibrant and inspiring "Berlin 4.0" crowd paired with "Berlin 2.0" decades of experience and success.
The dot-com crash in 2001 destroyed the early blossoms of the German Internet Age within a few months. But we believed that the Schumpeter'sche creative destruction in combination with the non-conformist spirit of Berlin can become a powerful entrepreneurial mix. We saw great need to connect the Internet community and move forward. That's why we founded Berlin 2.0.
To me, Berlin 2.0 is the perfect combination of an evening full of interesting conversations with friends and an authentic “capital city feeling” in a special atmosphere.
If it’s being said in the media around the world that Berlin has become a capital city for start-ups, then it can only be attributed to years of intensive work toward this development. The Berlin 2.0 event is at the root of this.
Berlin 2.0 has established itself as one of the most substantial and useful networking events in the German-speaking internet field.
What I find so great about Berlin 2.0 is the consistency in the number of visitors. There's always someone new but never too many people at once. As the group has always been relatively small (and will hopefully stay that way), there is a feeling of intimacy and trust. The connections made there were, and will continue to be, one of the drivers which makes Berlin Europe's internet metropolis.
The main reason for Berlin's success is the high number of creative and innovative people that have chosen Berlin as their place to live and work. With Berlin 2.0, we have created a regular event to bring leading internet pioneers together, discuss ideas and exchange experiences. We hope that this is a small piece in the puzzle for Berlin's continued success as the internet hub of Europe.
Berlin 2.0 is probably the oldest and definitely the most distinguished meeting of the Berlin Internet industry. This long-standing and ongoing gathering of the decision makers and creators of the Berlin web scene has surely contributed to making Berlin one of the most important cities in the Internet industry after Silicon Valley.
Cool, fun, exclusive and held in the most beautiful venues. For years now Berlin 2.0 has been the best networking event of the Berlin internet start-up scene! The GameDuell team organized a magnificent event, “for Friends by Friends”, the most pleasant forum for getting to know new bright minds in the Berlin entrepreneur scene.
This mix of entrepreneurship, willingness to take risks, creativity, curiosity, questioning, thinking differently, openness to new things, internationality - you only find it in one place in Europe. That's Berlin.
The Berlin digital scene is more vibrant, innovative and successful than ever before. Events such as Berlin 2.0 significantly contribute to creating this special spirit and encourage the cultivation of this unique synergy.
Berlin 2.0 has become an integral part of the new "Digital Berlin". It's a great opportunity to connect with colleagues and friends and to find out about the latest ideas in our industry. Berlin 2.0 has been a fixed date in my calendar for a long time.
