Introducing Vali Berlin, the entrepreneurship hub at ESMT

We hear a lot about “disruption” these days, especially as technologies like AI and machine learning transform traditional sectors like manufacturing. Can disruption be learned?  In Berlin – where the fast-developing startup scene raises comparisons to Silicon Valley – ESMT has launched an entrepreneurship hub. Will it transform a young crop of entrepreneurs into Germany’s next unicorns?  

Baris Efe is the manager and co-founder of Vali Berlin, the entrepreneurship hub at ESMT. He is a graduate of the 2020 ESMT Berlin Master’s in Management program and it’s where he and other students started Vali. Baris and Vali Berlin are both now part of the ESMT family, specifically of the Institute for Endowment Management and Entrepreneurial Finance. 

In episode #13 of Campus 10178, the ESMT Berlin podcast, Baris talks about how Vali Berlin was created, the development of its summer entrepreneurship program, and where it fits in Berlin’s startup ecosystem.
