#TECH 24

We explore the digital revolution and check out the latest technological trends. Every Saturday at 2.15 pm Paris time. Or you can catch it online from Friday.

Berlin, the Silicon Valley of Europe?

This week's special edition of Tech 24 takes us to Berlin. Despite a reputation for copycats, the German capital has one of the most innovative start-up scenes in Europe. Music sharing service SoundCloud has become a global success, and photo discovery app EyeEm is giving Instagram a run for its money. Through the lens of two very different tech festivals - one grass-roots, one pure geek - we ask whether Berlin is the Silicon Valley of Europe, and indeed whether it should want to be.
