Some things people miss about the 6Wunderkinder exit:
- The fact that Microsoft and other large corps are now going to look for more startups to buy in Berlin, because you CAN find interesting companies. THAT IS AMAZING for angels, accelerators, and smaller funds who have few internationally comparable exit scenarios until now.
- The amount of offshore capital large companies have, with repatriation costing anywhere between 20-40% in taxes. This is like a discount on the exit amount.
- That Berlin will now be a major Dev location for MS, meaning more money, more developers, startup oriented folks, and international exchange
- Angels are much more important than $B funds for the development of a startup ecosystem, and Berlin now has at least 6 more heavy hitter angels that can fuel the scene
