Meet TNU @ Factory Berlin

Although Nuremberg is our home and we focus on the metropolitan region around Nuremberg, FĂĽrth and Erlangen, we are also represented in the startup valleyof Berlin. With our location at the Factory, in the heart of the capital, our founders and startups can also get a taste of life in Berlin’s vibrant ecosystem. You will find us at Rheinsberger Str. 76/77, 10115 Berlin.

Why Berlin?

Berlin is more than Germany’s capital city, it’s the nation’s own startup valley. That’s why we decided to make ourselves present in the city where so many innovative ideas are emerging. As a member of Factory Berlin, we also give our employees and startups the chance to actively engage in Berlin’s startup ecosystem, to attend meetup events and build their professional networks.

Come and visit us!

Would you like to meet up with us in Berlin? No problem! It’s best to arrange a personal appointment with Timo or Volker at the Factory Kitchen (the publicly accessible cafe/restaurant, with great food!). We will be happy to also give you a tour of the Factory’s inspiring spaces.
