TechMeetups Berlin presents ‘Crossing the Chasm’ @BetaHaus Berlin, 20th Feb 2013
Dream about hitting stars with your startup? TechMeetups Berlin is bringing you startups who did it!
All startups face the same technology adoption lifecycle of : innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority and laggards.
In the lifecycle lies the perilous ‘Chasm’ which swallows up Startups in the thousands every year. Hundreds are launched and a few survive and make it big.
Understanding where your Startup is in this lifecycle and how some of your fellow startups crossed this Chasm is quite important in your Startup journey.
To help the Berlin TechMeetups community we have gathered 4 awesome tech companies presenting at our Crossing the Chasm Event on Wed the 20th of February 2013 at BetaHaus.
Some of our awesome presenters that evening include :

TechMeetups has been setup to create a global network of Tech communities from San Francisco to Sydney. We believe that Tech communities are isolated and great things can be achieved if we connect within our cities and outside our borders. Our goal is to create a global Tech cluster of over 50 inter-connected Tech communities by 2013.
