We invite founders, startuppers and all interested people who want to actively participate and engage with Berlin's Startup Eco-System to our open Nano Labs.

NanoLabs for Executives and Teams

If you keep your head open to new perspectives and to innovation, NanoLabs is for you. This could be a unique workshop, or a working session on an acute problem. It could also be a fireside chat with someone who can give you a new perspective. Nano Labs can be internal to a specific department, multi-functional across organisational boundaries and casted with external thinkers, creatives and do-ers.


NanoLabs can be described as a philosophical salon for disruptive thinkers.  Klaus has done a great job in curating a high quality community.  NanoLabs is thought provoking and fun. InnovationLabs.Berlin is a great space, both aesthetically and in terms of the freedom to test out new ideas, facilitation methods and modes of thinking.
