Startup Camp Berlins history started back in 2004. Eva, Florian and Sascha decided to invite Startup Founders, who survived the turmoils of the new economoy crises, to share their experience, storys and failures with young Entrepreneurs aiming on building Startups. In 2005 the first one day, single track conference with 56 attendees took place. Arnd Kwiatkowski (Founder Immobilien Scout 24) was one of the first speakers and Ehssan Dahriani (Founder of StudiVZ) was the first person ever who bought a ticket. The Name of the Conference at that time was Startup Lounge.
In 2010 Stefan and Sascha reinvented & restartet the (un) conference. The new Name Startup Camp Berlin.
In the last 12 Years of history we have seen aprox. 1.000 Speakers, 7.000 Startups Founders and 300 Investors and Berlin becoming a Startup Capital in Europe. The First Conference was subsidized by the Senat of Economics with 4.000€. Best Investment ever, so good :-)
