We enable relationship-building among investors, startups, and bridge builders by organizing monthly AsiaBerlin events and delegation trips to Berlin and Asia throughout the year.

Our flagship event, the AsiaBerlin Summit, is the annual summit of year-long AsiaBerlin activities where policymakers, startups, and investors meet to discuss the newest tech trends and cross-border collaboration between Asia and Berlin. The AsiaBerlin Forum e.V. (ABF) holds the AsiaBerlin Summit (ABS) office, the most extensive series of events related to Asia-Pacific in Germany.
