Start Alliance

Helping ideas to spread faster

Start Alliance Logo

Start Alliance was initiated in 2015. Our international network of cities supports fast growing businesses in going international, connects them to mature ecosystems worldwide, with special attention to the SDGs.

We want to strengthen the connection & collaboration between our ecosystems, to open doors for startups in the framework of their internationalization strategy, identify those who are ready to scale and settle in new markets.

Our programs are intended for scale ups and startups ready to grow beyond their home market.


Start Alliance aims to build a network of startup minded cities that cover every need for the startups deriving from those cities. Starting in 2015 by Berlin Partner for Business and Technology, 6 cities were the founding partners of this network: Berlin, London, New York, Paris, Shanghai and Tel Aviv.

Now 9 cities form the Start Alliance City Network: 

  • Beijing
  • Berlin
  • Dubai
  • London
  • New York
  • Paris
  • Shanghai
  • Tel Aviv
  • Vienna
