When Stage-Co started 3 years ago in Istanbul, Turkey, our main goal was to create an international network for startups, mentors and investors. Easier said than done as a bootstrapped organisation with a lot of energy and goodwill but without backing except our own very limited resources. Thanks to local partners in Berlin we are able to do this and we are very happy and proud that also BIC Angels from Istanbul, Turkey, jumps on the boat. BIC Angels is a very active Angel Investor and they will be present with 15 of their investors to understand the Berlin Startup ecosystem better and create synergies. Stage-Co is more than happy to welcome its Turkish friends in Berlin.
