HTGF Berlin Events

#networking #berlin #pitchsessions

Our Berlin team regularly organizes networking events for founders, investors, and other market partners to support the Berlin start-up ecosystem network across fund boundaries. In addition, we organize a Pitch Feedback Session once a month at our Berlin office, which we changed to a virtual 1:1 format during the pandemic. During this brief meeting, our investment managers – and sometimes renowned guest speakers – provide early feedback on your pitch.
