The idea of the Factory was born in 2011, when we were looking for space to bring together likeminded founders. We found a group of buildings next to the Berlin wall, which offered the chance to create something special - a campus for internet-enabled businesses in the heart of Berlin.
Our mission is to create advantages for startups by providing space and support for them to start or grow their businesses. We are accelerating the Berlin ecosystem by providing a playground to those that want to invent, change, improve and grow. Building bridges with blue chips, SMB's and the international tech community is supporting the momentum we are here to accelerate.
The Factory team combines entrepreneurial experience with expertise in community and event management. We believe that the secret to our collective success lies in the network of founders and enablers that make up our community.
Join us and become a part of this great community.
