GameDuell Co-Founder Boris Wasmuth gives his Perspective on Berlin at high-profile Panel Discussion During Media Convention/Berlin Web Week.

Our marketing director Boris Wasmuth discussed the state of affairs and the future of Berlin as home for media businesses during a high-profile stage panel at Media Convention Berlin yesterday. Together with popular TV presenter Klaas Heufer-Umlauf (Joko & Klaas), who also runs a production company in Berlin, the director of public TV and radio station RBB Dagmar Reim and the head of the Senatskanzlei of Berlin Björn Böhning, he talked about the ecosystem and infrastructure for media companies in Berlin.


Boris particularly highlighted the great working conditions for media companies and individuals in Berlin, the highly attractive cultural diversity of the city and the great network of founders and industry professionals. But he also noted that the cumbersome bureaucracy often hinders the recruiting and integration of top international producers and IT experts as a side address to the the political sector.



Several videos introducing Berlin based media projects and companies were shown during the panel. More of Boris’ statements about working and running a business in Berlin can be watched in this clip recorded at the GameDuell headquarters in Berlin-Mitte (German language only):
