Connecting Berlin and Beijing on 8 October 2021 : ABS Satellite Event
About the event
We are talking a lot about bridging ecosystems, but how does it look like in practice? With a focus on Beijing and Berlin, we will discuss synergies between two of the greatest hot spots of innovation. How are they simliar? How can they enrich each other? Where is more exchange needed? How do cross-border teams look like? This AsiaBerlin satellite event takes place within the TechCode #Path2China series in a hybrid format at Techcode Berlin Innovation Center, Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 5, 10178 Berlin.
We start off by giving an overview on all macro-level exchange programs and cooperation partnerships between Berlin and Beijing by a mixed speaker team Sandra (Berlin Partner), Yiran (Beijing) and Till (TechCode).
To continue, Hans Uszkoreit (Giance) and Han Xiao (Jina AI) will share with us how they have been leveraging both ecosystems, Berlin and Beijing, as young companies and by applying this “multiple location-strategy” to gain a competitive edge.
To finish off, will have all speakers joining a panel discussion, moderated by Till (TechCode) to discuss trends in ecosystem exchange together with the audience.
