A new space for the Berlin startup community to work, live and connect.

About Silicon Allee

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.

Silicon Allee’s first monthly meetup was hosted at Rosenthaler Platz in February 2011 and has been running on the first Tuesday morning of the month ever since. In the Summer of 2011 David Knight joined Silicon Allee as editor-in-chief, and served as the voice of the community for several years.

Since 2011 the term “Silicon Allee” has become synonymous with Berlin’s tech ecosystem. Berlin has become Europe’s startup capital, eclipsing London in 2014 in venture capital investments. Berlin is now one of the top cities in the world for entrepreneurs.

In 2016, on our fifth anniversary, Silicon Allee joined Factory to build a working, living and event space for our vibrant startup community in the center of Berlin. We look forward to welcoming you to our community and into our new space.
