FOMO Berlin: April 11 - April 16

Weekly newsletter keeping you up to date on the coolest events for tech & culture in Berlin

Hi Berliners 👋

I hope you all enjoyed your easter break and a good time with family and friends! 🐣 Last week was exciting and the events were poppin’! It’s time for a new week and new cool events in Berlin. By the looks of it, Thursday will be the busiest day, so I'm excited to see where you’re going 😉

Why FOMO Berlin?

For my weekend activities, I enjoy visiting the site Mit Vergnügen to discover cultural events, happening on the weekend. I always felt a bit frustrated 😤 that there was nothing similar to this for tech events and builders like us 🧑‍💻 

Every time I discovered a cool event, I’d share it with my friends to give us an opportunity to meet in person.

With FOMO Berlin, I simply aim to solve my own problem 😎 and make it just a bit easier to share all cool events with my friends 🤓

What did you FOMO last week?

I went to The session X The Reed on Thursday last week 🎷 Great music & so many cool people!
