Berlin, On April 8, Collegium Hungaricum Berlin, the official representative of Hungarian culture in Berlin, joint with the SM Conference Series brings on SMartUP! Berlin-Budapest (, an experimental conference and a virtual bridge between the startup scenes of the two European capitals. By connecting the venues of the conferences, id. streaming keynotes from and to the SM2015 leading CEE mobile/startup conference SM 2015 ( in Budapest, the organizers aim to create knowledge transfer.

The Berlin and the Budapest scenes share many features, yet their startup ecosystems may be very different. Definitely abundant in creative energy, both scenes have their unique investment culture, company culture, and views on market potentials. Let us see, if the two communities can learn from each other and if Silicon Alley can have a longer stretch!

The program of the Berlin meetup, put together under the curation of hub:raum and T-Labs, is now . We will hear stories from both scenes and views from elsewhere from authentic representatives of Berlin and Budapest based startups (Prezi, GetYourGuide, Flimmer, BorStore, Silicon Allee, etc.) and investors as well as about outreach programs making the B-ties even stronger.

The main topics of the Berlin conference are the following:

Berlin-Budapest Bridge

With a stronger-than-ever performer base, we are looking for an answer to the question ‘How can international partner connections be set up?’ and ‘How can prevalence be reached in the global market?’. We introduce Hungary and Berlin based startups with regards to already existing and possible connections between the two scenes.

Company Culture

Company culture means everything for a startup. It can affect the talent they attract, the customer base they work with, their brand reputation, and even their product itself. The multinational tech giants from Silicon Valley to Silicon Alley (Berlin) have struggled with creating company culture for years, but what about fledgling startups?

Investment Trends

There are two big forces driving change in startup funding: it’s becoming cheaper to start a startup, and startups are becoming a more normal thing to do. But, how is it done differently in Berlin and Budapest and what does it mean for investors?

Art Connections

Art and startups share two passions: sharing and creativity; however, they profit quite differently from these objectives. While financing such collaborative, project-based works, which avoid narrow categorization, through means other than public funding for art promotion has become difficult, startups continue to successfully collect large amounts of venture capital. How can we understand, describe, critique and perhaps overcome this unequal relationship between art and startups?

If you have a topic relating to bringing the two scenes together, do contact us.

There hasn’t been an event like this in the history of the Berlin startup scene. Emerging and active female entrepreneurs as well as their supporters talk about sexuality, mindset, and entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship is about perspective. Who you are, what you think, your personal habits and beliefs can determine the results you get. 80% of your success is your entrepreneurial mindset. Therefore, it is determined by the right kind of confidence. “This kind of confidence is the anchored self-assurance that comes when you are at peace with yourself and the basic stuff of life: love, authenticity, and acceptance of your place in the world” says G. Richard Shell, the author of Springboard, the business book of the year.  

Get ready! This evening you will meet successful entrepreneurs with the right kind of confidence. Plus, our invited coach will give you tips on how you can get there.

Commonly, exponential growth means explosive growth, it means that things increase in an uncontrolled way. This intuitive understanding comes from examples we know from biology: Bacteria exhibit exponential growth under optimal conditions. As a consequence the term „exponential“ often has a disquieting connotation.

When it comes to the significance of exponential growth for human activities we need to talk about accelerating technological change. In the technological arena accelerating change means an increase in technological (and often also social and cultural) progress throughout history, which may suggest a faster and more profound change in the future. 10.000 years of progress – at today’s pace – will now be experienced in just 50 years due to the exponential rate of change. 

Futurists like Ray Kurzweil have created the notion of a technological singularity and a scenario for the future: Accelerating change will lead to artificial intelligence that exceeds human intelligence. By 2015, a $1000 computer will have the same calculation power per second as the brain of a mouse. 2023 will see it equal to the power of human brain. In 2045 it will be equate to the power of ALL human brains combined. Similar exponential developments await us in the areas of robotics, nanotechnology or synthetic biology.

We want to explore where and how exponential change happens and what it will lead to. Which future will exponential change create for us? What are the implications these advances will have on society? What is the future role of humans in this brave new world? Is there a limit for exponential growth?

Join us at TEDxBerlin!
