In our globalised world, we increasingly encounter challenges towards achieving a sustainable future. One of the most pressing questions remains unanswered: How will people and goods move around sustainably without losing efficiency?
These major challenges in the mobility and logistics sector require innovative solutions from areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain or green hydrogen. As Europe’s leading logistics hub and an established test field for Intelligent Transport Systems, Hamburg is an ideal place to scale innovative business models. The Scaleup Landing Pad Hamburg makes it easier than ever to gain a foothold in Germany and Europe for successful companies in these sectors.
StartupCity Hamburg: the up-and-coming Innovation hub for young businesses
As the home of up-and-coming unicorns such as About You or Deposit Solutions, and with over 1,500 startups, Hamburg is well established in the Premier League of European startup locations. However, the Hanseatic City is particularly attractive for many founders due to its proximity to numerous global market leaders, which manage their global activities from here.
As a leading international trading centre, Hamburg has become a testing ground for new technologies ranging from autonomous driving to the use of green hydrogen. The fact that an above-average number of women (17%) are founding businesses here certainly also highlights the city’s future viability.
