Berlin’s technology scene is booming! The German capital is home to a vibrant startup community; according to PitchBook, a startup is founded every 20 minutes in the capital. This is backed by a well-established infrastructure for financing and funding. VC companies, incubators, accelerators and coworking spaces in the city all provide tech entrepreneurs with the perfect combination of support and opportunity to succeed.
Berlin and indeed Germany's biggest issue right now is finding the right level of talent to support their phenomenal growth. Online publication Medium suggests that Germany will need to find an extra 700,000 tech specialists by 2030 to sustain its recent levels of growth.
All of this set against the backdrop of one of the world's strongest economies and most forward-thinking cultures makes the German capital of Berlin a very appealing city for anyone with tech talent looking for their next challenge.

LIVING IN THE CITY
Berlin is one of Europe’s best cities to live in. Its open-mindedness and friendly vibe are immediately apparent to anyone visiting, and its low cost of living attracts people from all over the world. This makes Berlin an incredibly cosmopolitan city, where diverse cultures and communities come together in harmony. And we couldn’t talk about Berlin without mentioning its world-famous nightlife: from techno clubs to tiny independent punk bars, there’s something for everyone.
Compared to most major European cities, Berlin is also surprisingly cheap to live in. Rents remain fairly affordable even in the most hip areas, while public transport is widely available and a single ticket allows you to travel on buses, U-Bahns, trains and more within the city.
