FOMO Berlin: May 8 - May 14

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

Hi, Berliners 👋

It’s Monday and it’s FOMO time! Last week was busy, as always, but I really enjoyed the amazing events. This week offers a mix of cool tech meet-ups, music, sports, and outside gatherings ⛱️ It will be full of learning and great fun I think! I hope to see you all out there ✌️

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?

The weather is catching up with the calendar ☀️ It’s getting warmer and we can finally go out and enjoy the sun this week! Can’t wait 😎

Shout-out time - LOTTA LUDWIGSON

I didn’t do any sponsor posts yet but I want to support things that I believe in and help my friends! My super close friend Charlotte & Nhu-Ha launched their slow luxury brand - Lotta Ludwigson - the first 100% circular & biodegradable timeless business attire for women. Check out their newly launched website if you or someone you know is in need of a sustainable suit for some serious business 😎
