Silicon Allee® was started by entrepreneurs Schuyler Deerman and Travis J. Todd. Inspired by their US roots and time spent in San Francisco, they set out to build a startup community in Berlin with meetups, events and an English-language blog. Since 2011 the term “Silicon Allee” has become synonymous with Berlin’s tech ecosystem.
Silicon Allee’s mission has always been to connect Berlin’s tech community with the rest of the world. They have consulted companies moving to Berlin, produced internationally renowned events in the city and continue to produce valuable content to promote and provide deeper insights into the local tech economy. They have grown to also become the first contact many have with Berlin’s tech ecosystem – the unofficial welcoming committee for Berlin’s newest entrepreneurs and tech employees.
