We sit in a converted factory building, front-and-center in Berlin's Mitte district and just steps from the former Berlin wall. Most of us "cross the border" at least twice a day, reminding us of the incredible history of our adopted "home". We count ourselves lucky to have the opportunity to build our business and our lives in this historic place.
