TechHub expands to Berlin to help entrepreneurs get international2013-10-29 1
TechHub, a provider of workspace and services for tech entrepreneurs, has today announced it will be launching in Berlin. It’s the seventh announced location – currently, TechHub has physical spaces in London, Manchester, Swansea, Riga and Bucharest, with a Bangalore location scheduled to open next year.
Founded in 2010 by Varley and TechCrunch’s European Editor Mike Butcher, TechHub offers a community for startups – it does not make any investments or take equity from member companies.
With its Berlin location, slated to launch next year, TechHub hopes to provide a place for startups to connect with investors, talent and international contacts more quickly. It already has partnerships with Google, Blackberry and British Telecom among others. Not only that, TechHub will be working with another yet-to-be open Berlin tech hub – The Factory – according to a statement by The Factory’s CEO Simon Schaefer.
TechHub cofounder and CEO Elizabeth Varley said: ”In the coming months TechHub Berlin events will begin and we’re already in talks with some very exciting companies that are keen to be founding partners for our launch.”
