Perched on the Itz River, Coburg is in the Upper Franconia region of Bavaria in Germany. Up until the revolution of 1918, Coburg was one of the capitals of the Duchy of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Closely linked to the royal houses of Europe by numerous marriages, it was frequently visited by the crowned heads of Europe. Known as being home to one of Germany's largest castles, the "Veste Coburg", it was here that Martin Luther lived for 6 months whilst translating the Bible into German in 1530. A popular tourist destination, Coburg is cloaked in a large number of historical buildings and has a population of about 41,500 residents running around its streets, imbibing in beer, chatting about football or hanging out in a coworking venue getting creative before they go home to watch the football match. Sitting at the foot of the Thuringian Highland about 90km from the town of Erfurt and 100km from Nuremberg, Coburg was first mentioned in a monastic document in 1056.
Germany's startup scene is thriving with opportunities given to creative souls to pitch their ventures to investors at "Startup Germany" that went on tour at the instigation of the German Chambers of Commerce Abroad. The startup scene is a bit of a mixed bag with almost 30% of startup staff not being German. There are a few hurdles to overcome such as red tape hassles, language barriers and the fact that most founders wish to hire skilled foreign workers. Eight out of ten German startups wish to go international, but legal systems and regulations may be inhibitors in this regard.
Despite these niggles, coworking spaces are overflowing with creatives in collaborative mode whilst mingling with a vibrant community sometimes in a "Coburger Bratwurst" frenzy when the ideas fly amidst mouthfuls of delight.
