Our home and heart is in Berlin, as we believe in the potential of our local creative scene. Some of the greatest businesses of our time were conceived due to the founders meeting coincidently. Here at Factory Berlin, we want to make that coincidence a little more likely. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and we feel the same way about ideas. We create the space; you fill it.
Combining his one of a kind real estate expertise with his passion for startups, Factory was founded by CEO Udo Schloemer in 2011. Located right at the site of the former Berlin Wall, our main campus in Berlin Mitte was inaugurated by Google chairman Eric Schmidt and Berlin mayor Klaus Wowereit in 2014. Two years later, in 2016, Factory Berlin introduced the world’s first business club for startups, bringing together entrepreneurs, startups and corporations through a curated community, world-class events and beautiful workspace. Today, Factory counts over 1,000 members from two dozen nations and works with startups like Uber, SoundCloud, and Zendesk as well as companies such as Deutsche Bank, Schaeffler, and Google. Factory’s newest location at Görlitzer Park opened in 2017, putting us on the map as Europe’s biggest club for startups.
