The hope of launching a dream enterprise – BerlinSTARTUP.de

It seems like there’s a new hot startup scene every few years with ambitious entrepreneurs from around the world congregating there in the hopes of launching their dream enterprises. The newest startup scene isn’t in California or a major Chinese city; it’s Berlin’s emerging startup scene that has people talking.

As you can imagine, the city opened up after the Berlin wall fell in 1989, drawing creatives, artists, and dreamers alike over time. Over the past decade, major technology players and companies are taking their claims.
Consider the perspective of an aspiring entrepreneur. Rather than take inventory of all of the major corporations or small startup companies looking for good people, you may just want to launch your own organisation. The good news is you won’t find a big language barrier. You certainly don’t have to speak German, although that certainly won’t hurt you. People from all over the globe have found their way to Berlin and you’ll have have access to plenty of international personnel for your company. As a huge plus, work visas are relatively easy to obtain.
