First off, some Berlin bashing: Sebastian Diemer, calling himself “The Diemer”, founded a couple of startups , right now Farmako, a cannabis startup, has had it with Berlin. He wrote on Facebook: “I am not a fan of hipsters, excessive feminism, so I am looking forward to more conservative roles – men that act and look like men, vice versa for the ladies".” he writes and adds: “Drugs and Party. If you have never taken cocaine or any other chemical drugs like myself and don’t attend the “Berlin clubs” (I haven't made it to any of the trashy druggy places in 2,5 years) there isn’t much value in having 2147124 places around that allow you to party from Wednesday to Tuesday with f****d up people in f****d up locations :)” https://www.deutsche-startups.de/2018/12/17/derdiemer-wuenscht-sich-men-that-act-and-look-like-men-vice-versa-for-the-ladies/
