Berlin Startup Mentor Programs

Berlin’s startup scene is just blossoming. Compared to other startup hubs, it’s a small ecosystem in terms of size and funding. Berlin attracts around 50,000 new inhabitants a year and has the highest rate of startups that have relocated from elsewhere according to the Startup Genome Report (2018). With investors like Techstars putting capital into the startup ecosystem, it’s a great time for startups in Berlin.

Founders Network is connecting Berlin’s local startup scene with a global network. We’re a mentorship program that facilitates peer-to-peer mentoring for Founders across the world. As Berlin’s startups look to grow, Founders Network can connect our Berlin members with valuable resources they may not have current access to.

Galen Buckwalter
Founder of eHarmony

I’m a very technical person. Not big on the business side of things. Thanks to Founders Network, I’ve received valuable, actionable business advice from both founders and investors alike.

Linden Tibbets
Founder of IFTTT

I would say it’s a very reasonable cost to tap into a worldwide network of entrepreneurs who, as a group, have gone through just about everything you can imagine and have a world of experience they can offer to you.
