Startup Guide Hamburg

As the second largest German city and the second largest port in Europe, Hamburg is not a stranger to trading and entrepreneurship. Its perfect geographical location has allowed the harbor city to be one of the main trading centers of the Old Continent, setting a good ground for Hamburg to be a strong player in German economics. There has been a recent boom in the startup ecosystem, with massive investments (for example, the seven-digit investment for eBlocker), a growing number of coworking spaces, and more entrepreneurs moving here to explore the hip soul of the city.

Startup Guide Hamburg features up-and-coming startups, interviews with local influential people and an overview of the city’s coworking spaces and programs.

On this book:

“I was at a lot of events, and I always saw men on stage. As a woman, as a girl, even if you don’t have the right role model, how are you supposed to know that you can do this as well?”

Carolin Neumann Cofounder , finletter

“If a business doesn’t have a clear financial system in place, they always have issues raising money.”

Stefanie Hagenmüller , KPMG AG
