WELCOME TO THE PLACE

Stepping foot into The Place, you’ll be instantly surrounded by doers, thinkers, and kind souls; by people who have the craziest ideas and have come to Berlin to make them a reality. Since planting our roots in Berlin as the Rainmaking Loft Berlin three years ago, we have grown to the realisation that we are much more than a physical space for startups. We are a community. We believe that a special environment brings like-minded people together, and when like-minded people are brought together, true magic can happen.

We are always growing, always learning and always striving to make great things happen. We are here to help you Connect, Collaborate and Co-Innovate with each other, investors, corporates and everything in between.

THE PLACE WHERE STARTUPS ARE BORN

The Place is an international startup hub—a stimulating 2000 square meter space within a former printing house. In a garage-style atmosphere with 7-meter vaulted ceilings and tons of natural light, we’re well positioned to bring in a new breed of founders and young companies.

Startups are the spark that lights the engine of The Place. Ottonova, Grover and relayr are just a few examples of members that have attracted tens of millions in investment capital. We’ve seen success stories and startups growing big—raising rounds, going public, making exits, and gaining huge experience.
