Our story 

Silicon Allee’s mission has always been to connect Berlin’s tech community with the rest of the world.

We have consulted companies moving to Berlin, developed incredible partnerships, and produced internationally renowned events in the city. We like to think of ourselves as the unofficial welcoming committee for Berlin’s newest entrepreneurs and tech employees.

The Beginning

Silicon Allee was started in 2011 by entrepreneurs Schuyler Deerman, David Knight and Travis Todd. Inspired by their upbringing in the US and time spent in San Francisco, they set out to build a startup community in Berlin with meetups, events and an English-language blog.

Our Growth

In 2016, Silicon Allee joined Factory to build a working, living, and event space for our vibrant startup community in the center of Berlin. We opened the campus in January of 2017, with a stellar group of international and local technology companies in residence.

Connecting Community

At the end of 2019 we launched the Berlin Founders Fund, an equity-free fund for early-stage founders. We invest money, time, and our network into founders with great ideas, but we don’t charge for it. The goal is to extend each startup’s runway and help founders raise their first real investment round.
