Portugal Ventures in Berlin
In partnership with Leonhard Ventures and Betahaus, Portugal Ventures has established a centre in Berlin.
This Portugal Ventures’ hub is in the heart of Berlin’s start-up ecosystem, in a leading innovation area. The accelerator at Betahaus, and the partnership with Leonhard Ventures, allows Portugal Ventures to access a relevant network of scientific, business and investor entities that will benefit Portugal Ventures’ portfolio companies, which will have the chance to seek out opportunities in German speaking countries and in Central Europe.
Since January 2009, Betahaus has been located in a formerly state-owned space on Prinzessinnenstraße, close to the Moritzplatz underground, in the heart of the Kreuzberg district, near the centre of Berlin.
Betahaus offers areas for quiet, concentrated work, as well as plenty of communal areas where you can make a phone call, or simply think out loud. Apart from separate meeting rooms, a large event area, a makerspace, an electronics lab and a café on the ground floor for relaxed entertainment, they have a co-working space of approximately 3,000 square metres.
Companies can have access to one of the most successful and dynamic start-up ecosystems in Europe, which produces a host of start-ups, has a wide range of support incubators/accelerators, diverse and competitive talent, and also a strong community of business angels and venture capitalists.
Portugal Ventures’ accelerator in Berlin is open to companies and to the entire Portuguese technology-based entrepreneurship ecosystem.
