Brexit will turn Berlin into 'Europe’s startup capital'
Thanks to its location in a finance centre and also fewer language barriers with Silicon Valley, London has long been dubbed the startup capital of Europe. But not anymore, according to the some tech industry experts. “The German startup capital of Berlin is the winner of Brexit, London is the loser,” said German Startups Association boss Florian Nöll on Friday. At the same time though, Nöll said this isn’t the kind of victory one should celebrate. “We haven’t seen ourselves as German or British entrepreneurs in a long time. We are European entrepreneurs. Our startups were founded for international markets.”
