We re-imagine collaboration by connecting people, ideas, and resources to impact our community, our surroundings, and the world.

Factory Berlin is an ecosystem of over 3,500 members from more than 70 nations located on two campuses – Factory Berlin Görlitzer Park and Factory Berlin Mitte. We curate the most ambitious creators from the tech, creative, and corporate industries. Our diverse community comes together to connect, collaborate, and thrive.

Members have access to workspace in our two locations, 400 educational and social events a year, entrepreneurship and creative mentorship programs, and online and offline networking activities. We forge partnerships with global organizations, for example, Google for Startups, and McKinsey & Company, in order to give startups access to resources that help their businesses grow.

Our Story

It all started with a vision to create Germany’s first and largest international network of tech startups, fueled by a passion for building spaces. Udo Schloemer, founder of Factory Berlin, opened the people-centric space in 2014 to build a Community for all types of experts and innovators.

Located on the former Berlin Wall, the original location, Factory Berlin Mitte, was designed by architect Julian Breinersdorfer and interior designers Anna Sophie Rickers and Sabrina Heimig-Schloemer.

In 2018, we scaled along with the Berlin startup ecosystem, and opened Factory Berlin Görlitzer Park. 14000 sqm of innovation labs, shared workspaces, and event space, featuring a cinema, cafe, restaurant, music studio, a 360 XR Room, and the Creators Lab.

Our Team
