FOMO Berlin: May 2 - May 7

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

Hi, Berliners 👋

I hope you all enjoyed a long weekend, ending with celebrating Mayday in the wonderful sun yesterday ☀️ Spring is finally starting to show its colors, and the events are moving outdoors! It’s time for an overview of the amazing happening in Berlin this week ✌️

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?
