Hello everyone! My name is Oksana, and I am here to tell you my Germany story. I am from Estonia, and I am 25. I studied and worked in England for almost 7 years and then one day when I became bored from work and depressed from constant rain, I decided to move to Germany. So I’ve swapped my cozy office chair for three kids who I au-paired for for half a year. I like travelling, cooking, jogging, meeting new people, and discovering new opportunities.
Attention please. This isn’t once upon a time type of story and it has no “…and they lived happily ever after” ending (just yet), thus all characters and events appearing in this blog are real.

Meanwhile in Berlin
The German government has ok-ed 8 billion Euros to help flood victims.

There is hype in Berlin and it’s all about the tech scene–the combination of creativity and affordable real estate in a cool metropolis has welcomed the international community. Excited entrepreneurs have flocked to the new mecca as it stabilizes an ecosystem for newborn companies, inviting investors brave enough to take big risks on original ideas.
What makes the European market distinct from other technological epicenters is a very dispersed market. The Eurozone is divided into 24 countries with different languages and these areas are further divided into smaller business districts. This fragmentation changes the way start-ups in Berlin are approached, viewed, and developed.
