Into The Wild of Berlin's Booming Digital Economy

The hype surrounding Berlin’s tech scene exploded in 2011, as the German capital became a byword for Europe’s startup scene. But the buzz was built on a solid foundation, and Berlin’s technology sector has been growing in importance and influence over the past ten years. Located at the heart of Europe’s biggest economy, scores of businesses from around the world are flocking to the continent’s most fashionable destination.
