Berlin, Seriously?

Sure, Berlin may have better discos, and cheaper rent. But let’s be honest here, Berlin doesn’t have 3 possible IPOs this year, or any for that matter. In fact the next IPO to from Berlin when it does happen will likely be the company there started by Swedes from Stockholm. Go figure.
