DIS 2015: So much more!
Berlin is one of the hippest cities in Europe, and is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s hottest startup scenes.
While the Summit with speaker programme on 23-24 March remains the focal point of the event, the DIS has developed into a hive of activity, tapping into opportunities the city has to offer.
The overall DIS includes a hackathon, startup tours and networking opportunities. 
22 March: Berlin startup tours and city tour (to be confirmed); opening drinks
23 March (afternoon): the DIS Startup Xchange forms part of the main Summit, showcasing some of the best Berlin startups in five minute sessions with Q&A opportunity
23 March (late evening): delegates are invited to join us for a fun evening of drinks and networking at a Berlin venue, to be announced at the Summit (cost of drinks is for your own pocket, fun is free!)
