Fast-growing companies relocate their headquarters for many reasons, and GetYourGuide is no different. After being founded in Zurich in 2009, the experience-booking platform decided to move its main office to Berlin in 2018, aiming to leverage the city’s growing start-up expertise and appeal to tech talent.

Tao Tao, GetYourGuide’s co-founder and chief operating officer, joined fDi’s regular start-up podcast to discuss tourism trends during the pandemic and what has made Germany’s capital such a successful tech hub. Listeners can expect to learn more about GetYourGuide’s journey, the funding landscape in Berlin and what needs to change to ensure the city stays competitive in the global war for talent.
