Meet and Pitch: Autumn Edition


Dec 6th 2022
18:30 – 21:00


Factory Berlin Görlitzer Park

In this Meet & Pitch event, we are curating pitches from some of the most exciting startups, corporate innovators, and empowerment partners in our community.

The Factory Berlin network is growing and changing all the time — it’s hard to catch every company on campus at Factory Görlitzer Park and Mitte. Selected teams will be welcomed on stage to share a little bit about what they do, why they do it, and how they want to involve the community along the way.

Each speaker will get five minutes to pitch their story and #ask-for-feedback during a short Q&A session with the audience. After the planned pitches, everyone from the audience will have an opportunity to make a 1-minute elevator pitch and share their story, too.

Learn more about the opportunities that the Factory Berlin community has to offer:

  1. News and updates from our most exciting startups first-hand;
  2. Accelerator programs and events offered by our empowerment partners and corporate innovators;
  3. Other exciting opportunities to connect and collaborate within the Factory Berlin community.

Join us at Factory Berlin Görlitzer Park to get the inspiration from your fellow members.
