For the second time, we have been contracted to ideate and organize a one-week delegation programme of Berlin capital region digital media companies to discover the New York creative tech business environment. Initiated by the ZAB, medienboard and media.net, it took place this time during the Internet Week New York where two of the delegates made it to the Short List to Make the Stage. We had a packed programme of events – an introduction by the Director of International Affairs von dem Mayor’s Office, the NYC Economic Development Corporation and the German Consulate, followed by a german-american innovation workshop at the German Center for Research and Innovation. We attended dedicated companies showcases and presentations at Google, Barnes & Noble and Shutterstock – among others. A practical workshop hands-on at LinkedIn and a pitch session at the renowned The Hatchery had the companies learn how to present themselves and network New York style: fast, straight forward and most efficient! Last but not least – the bespoke business matchmaking event at TurnToTech where delegates could meet up to 5 carefully selected potential business partners in the City and so start their american business right away.
