Summer 2020 Dates: TBD
Berlin is quickly becoming one of Europe's biggest startup hubs. It has the advantage of having a lower cost of living than other startup hubs like Silicon Valley, and the city's art and theater scenes bring creative minds and a new perspective to the industry. Although the city's startup community is on the rise, there are several areas in which it is still growing and developing. Thus, breaking into the startup scene in Berlin is an opportunity for you to "get in on the ground floor" so to speak; your fellowship could help you become a part of the world's next biggest startup.
“I decided to participate in Sage Corps and it turned out to be literally the perfect opportunity. For the past few years now, I have been itching to both work for a startup, and travel abroad, two things that I never had the opportunity to do before. Because Sage Corps allowed me to do those things simultaneously, I wanted to explore what Sage Corps had to offer in order to figure out if this experience would be a good fit for me. Turns out the fit was perfect, and I have never felt more assured of the future.”
