Berlin, a cosmopolitan city inhabited by creative people and entrepreneurs
Berlin is getting attractive for people from around the globe. Many of these people are young entrepreneurs with a strong initiative, eager to learn and build their own projects. These people have so many different backgrounds but they have something in common: they all are looking for challenges! This is why I came from Mexico City half a year ago and I know how difficult it can be to start from zero.
The new settlers of Berlin come looking for what we have heard, that in this city we get access to a great cultural scene and a variety of attractions. Furthermore, the city is a creative playground for all kind of minds which dare to start something. Berlin is a vibrant city full of movement, diversity, and surprises for everyone.
However, we need to realize that things are not going to be just put to be taken. We rather have to become proactive and look for the doors and the correct information. Everyone has to be ready to meet new people, groups, and communities to feel comfortable and cosy.
Not surprisingly Berlin is full of people who have gone through the situation of being new to the city. I can speak out of my own experience. On the one hand, I know how it feels to be new without any idea of the German bureaucracy rules and the unknown heartbeat of this vibrant city. On the other hand, I see many people full of a positive spirit who want to share what they know. They are able to create networks to facilitate the experience of coming to settle down in this awesome city.
Stop feeling lost and do networking in Berlin
An excellent way to meet people and do networking is to attend events. There are many free events in which you can learn and be surrounded by people with fresh ideas. Check out all kind of options! It is a great way to connect with new people. There are also a lot of startup events, in some, you have to pay the entry, in others, you can participate as a volunteer. And do not miss social networks like Facebook or Twitter, where you can find very useful pages and groups.
Last week Club Globals was organizing the event Startup Connect Berlin. This event had the participation of young people who presented their startup pitch in a dynamics of competition. Of course, there were investors present as well! This created an environment to connect people and to reveal opportunities for the attendees, plus the fact of being inspired with the ideas of entrepreneurs.
So this is just a bit of this exciting city, I can’t wait to see what comes next. You should get contact with the Club Globals network. Share your ideas, plans, visions with proactive people with clear goals, a positive mindset and surely you will find some of the answers you were looking for.
