Startup Institute Berlin launches first cohort!

Join us in welcoming a new, international class of Startup Institute students into the tent all the way from Germany. #SIBer represents an astounding 11 different countries! They’ve made marshmallow towers of 44cm, experienced their first week of a fire hose, and even drew their director Andrew alongside the owl. (See more photos)

Overheard: “I really like that you focus on us as people. When we are sitting around in an andragogical circle and talking together, it’s really bonding. This is very different.”

Please continue to send warm welcomes and best wishes to our new students across the pond via Twitter, Facebook, and other creative methods.

#SIBer Welcome the the SI family! @StartupInst#SINY
