AsiaBerlin Fireside Chat with Awesome Capital: On the 1st German-Chinese Investment Fund
We hosted the second edition of #AsiaBerlin Fireside Chat with Berlin Senate and enpact on July 29, featuring Enrico Jakob, Managing Partner & COO, Awesome Capital group. Enrico Jacob shared his insights about the 1st German-Chinese Investment Platform with Venture DNA, moderated by Mali Baum, Founder & CEO, WLOUNGE and Magda Group, also AsiaBerlin Ambassador.
Enrico showed the opportunities and necessities for cooperation with Chinese partners due to the speed of innovation and economic dynamic in China.
“The next Silicon Valley will probably be in China or maybe it is there already. What we in Europe should already know is to work more closely with Asia, to be open and to build real win-win situations so that everyone can benefit from them in the long term.” – Enrico Jakob, Managing Partner, COO, Awesome Capital Group
Joining capital from Europe and China is Awesome Capital’s approach to build startup bridges between the ecosystems even in difficult times. Mali Baum worked with Chinese partners since 2006, while still living in Tel Aviv, and now living in Berlin, she thinks bridging both ecosystems, its talent and investors is significant for the success of Berlin and its younger generation. We were joined by over 52 attendees from five different countries!
