Matchmaking with big corporates? 
Sounds like DDW Berlin!
That’s another wrap! From pitch training to matchmaking sessions with big corporates and networking dinner with investors #DDWBerlin is officially over, at least for this year! 

What we heard?
"In Berlin nobody asks you where are you from but they are asking where you are heading. People coming to Berlin from Silicon Valley or New York do not see it as a step back, but as a step forward."

What the startups said?
"Deep Dive Week was an amazing experience! We got to experience the startup vibe of Berlin while meeting everyone in the German IoT industry in only 5 days."
