Techfugees Berlin 🇩🇪

🇩🇪 Techfugees Berlin 🇩🇪

Germany is home to over a million asylum seekers, many of whom have been here for 3+ years and are looking to establish a life and career for their families.

Berlin is one of the start-up powerhouses of Europe, and is known for its ever-expanding tech landscape. The Techfugees chapter in Berlin which started in 2016 is focused on supporting and providing resources for refugees with a passion of becoming founders in the technology industry.

The Techfugees Berlin mission brings together a group of committed members from the associative, technology and investment communities all striving to provide support in navigating the entrepreneurial process in Germany.

Mohammad ALSEBAIE, Volunteer Berlin

Mohammad is a refugee from Syria, studying a master's in Information System Management at the TU Berlin. He experienced hardship in his native country and lost his successful family business, so he forced to leave his country to seek better opportunities to support his family. He believes that tough days never last, but tough people do. Mohammad started building his career path again in Berlin with great faith. As he is very close to the refugees' community, he feels that refugees want to be more integrated and productive but they want some guidance. He believes that Techfugees would be a great chance for those. His ultimate goal is to become a CRM manager one day.

Techfugees would also like to thank former volunteers Ernesta and Tom for launching the Chapter in Berlin back in 2016.
