Together with TechBerlin we hosted a fireside chat with Balderton Capitals masterminds Suranga Chandratillake and Daniel Waterhouse. Our intention was to showcase the benefits and values Balderton is adding to the Berlin startup ecosystem and – on the other hand – give them the possibility to interact with the pulsing berlin tech community.
