Peter Ha will be there from the US to represent CrunchGear together with Mike Butcher who writes for both TechCrunch UK and TechCrunch. We both look forward to being able to say “Ich bin ein Berliner”!

We still have a couple of sponsorship opportunities available, so should you be interested, please let us know via our amazing co-host and co-organiser Nicholas MacGowan von Holstein, Twidox Co-founder.

    see you there, mike! :-)

  • David

    Hi Mike. Would love to join, but the link to Xing is not working for me although I have an account.

  • shafqat

    That’s the office of a startup?!! Wowzer. Pretty shabby.

  • Christian - imedo

    Hi shafqat,

    that’s “only” the conference lounge (located in our office building) we will rent for the event. Not our office – don’t worry, we haven’t lost our minds :-) Hope to see you there!

  • Hendrik Mans

    Most of these companies are not going to be around in two years from now.

  • Nicholas

    @ Hendrik – that is a pretty bold statement from someone who obviously doesn’t know what he is talking about. XING, Sevenload, Media Ventures, Qype, Plazes, etc will not be around (?); well that is nothing short of ridiculous. All of these companies have a great concept and/ or are either listed on the stock exchange, are well funded, are supported by powerful investors and already have a proof of concept. BTW, I don’t see antigames or d5k taking the world by storm. Sorry mate, people in glass houses should not throw with stones.
