Google introduces own Startup Campus in Berlin
Simultaneously, Google announced that it will be extending the existing collaboration with innovation hub <link http://factoryberlin.com/>Factory</link> by another three years. Unlike Factory, the Berlin Campus with a total area of 2,400 square metres, will not be a co-working space for startups. In fact, the focus will be on workshops, training, and networking events for startup founders. “With Startup Campus Berlin, our city will benefit from a new forum for cooperation, creativity and entrepreneurship,” Michael Müller, governing mayor of Berlin, was pleased to announce. As one of the top ten startup locations in the world, Berlin was an obvious choice, he said.
After London, Madrid, São Paulo, Seoul, Tel Aviv and Warsaw, the German capital is the seventh city to host a Google Campus. In the past year, more than 38,000 hours of training were provided across all Campus locations. With programmes such as “Campus for Moms” or “Founders over 50”, Google also intends to strengthen diversity within the startup community.
