Calling all startups! Apply to join SCALE18 for free

Funds are the biggest pain point for any startup. Be it organising a meeting, hiring new staff, buying licensed software or subscribing to a new service, a startup is always pressed for money. Even if the business is well funded, then the founders still need to think before spending a single cent.

At DCMN, we understand this problem because our two co-founders – Andreas Dengler, CEO & Matthias Reidl, Chief Growth Officer -– have gone through this stage in their own journey to success. The duo understands the value of good guidance and knowledge sharing for a startup in its early stages deciding where to spend its budget.

Adeline Lee of Clue shares her insights on app store optimisation at SCALE17.

It is for this simple reason that we’re inviting startups to attend our annual conference SCALE18 for free. The event is slated to be held in Berlin on October 25 at Radialsystem V, near Berlin Ostbahnhof.

Themed around exploring today’s innovations and tomorrow’s possibilities in marketing, technology, creativity and work, all visiting B2C startups younger than three years can apply for two complimentary tickets (maximum) at no cost. Tickets include the cost of food and drinks. Startups can register at

The annual conference, which is already in its fourth edition, will be a treasure trove of information for startups and a great platform to meet their counterparts who have already established themselves in the markets. They can learn from their experiences and find out the solutions to their challenges.

SCALE17 saw WeTransfer’s VP of Content, Rob Alderson, deliver the closing keynote on creativity in a data-driven age.

Plus, there will be plenty of startups on stage sharing their insights with the audience! Some of the names that set to speak this year are Babbel, IAB, NBCUniversal, OTTO, Outbrain, Silvertree Internet Holdings, Weltsparen, WeWork, Wibbitz and more.

The conference takes place on two stages, and guests can expect a diverse mix of technical insights and visionary talks from founders, marketers and advertisers. On both SCALE18 stages we will present a great bandwidth of perspectives – and we also want to make sure that the audience is as diverse and growth-hungry as possible.

Over the years, SCALE has emerged as a leading go-to conference in Berlin for startups, digital first brands, media houses, and creative heads. For more details about speakers and to grab your tickets, visit
