Berlin is a city with a deep history, Bismarck, Marx, Einstein, JFK and Bowie, theyā€™ve all shaped ā€“ and been shaped by ā€“ Berlin.

Often referred to as Europe's newest start-up capital, a new start-up is founded every 20 minutes. The startup industry is set to produce 100,000 new jobs by 2020.
