Company and career news for readers in business between the U.S. and Germany. Mostly in English and short.
Entrepreneurs in the [German capital](http://www.germany-usa.com/recruiting-in-berlin-germany.php "Berlin: How to recruit local staff in Germany?") complain about a lack of funding from local venture capitalists, according to a recent New York Times “Bits” blog post.
In addition, logistical challenges make it difficult for American investors to get more engaged: no direct flights from the German capital to the U.S. West Coast, for example.
Any bet the economic development managers of competing German cities like Frankfurt or Munich got a kick out of reading the piece.
