The finalists of the Future Hamburg Award, Hamburg’s international startup award, have been announced: ten European startups with smart solutions for the city of the future have qualified for this year’s award shortlist. All of the finalists convinced the jury with their innovative strength and creativity, a unique business model and great potential for growth. The award winners will be able to look forward to a business and networking programme in Hamburg and Silicon Valley as well as direct access to major global markets. The ultimate winners will be jointly announced with this year’s partner Plug and Play on 10 June 2021.
Established by the City of Hamburg and now in its second edition, the Future Hamburg Award is aimed at honouring sustainable, innovative international startups from the fields of mobility, logistics and hydrogen. The ten teams who have entered the final round are eager to enhance urban life with their pioneering products. Their business ideas range from AI-based software to reduce air pollution and CO2 emissions as well as new strategies and technologies for plastic avoidance to a sustainable mobility solution that allows any vehicle to run on solar power alone.
