FOMO Berlin: April 17 - April 23

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

Hi Berliners 👋

I hope you all had a great weekend, despite the somewhat sad spring weather 🌧️ It’s a new week, and the events are piling up as usual! So many interesting meet-ups happening and it’s a hard choice as always 😰 I hope to see some of you out there, so let me know 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?
