We believe that traits are vital for success:




Berlin – Kreuzberg

Berlin is the founding capital in Europe. Fueled by its creative spirit and excessive network of young talents, Berlin has overtaken many other European Tech-Hubs by various KPIs.

“Berlin is the #1 by the annual size of investments […], international investors and talents are attracted” – Tagesspiegel

“Berlin startups raised about $2.2bn in venture capital last year compared with $1.5bn in London, and the investor flow is set to continue.” – The Guardian

At the heart of the start-up ecosystem is the Berlin’s district Kreuzberg, where Spielfeld Digital Hub is located. Kreuzberg historically grew to a rebellious epicenter of the city, and even in the digital age – it continuous being one. Today for example, Kreuzberg harbors the highest density of businesses accepting bitcoins in the world.
