Startup Guide Hamburg

Hamburg, one of Europe’s strongest trading cities, is not only home to some 400 startups and a concert hall designed by algorithms. It’s also where a startup ecosystem is in full swing.



As the second largest German city and the second largest port in Europe, Hamburg is no stranger to trading and entrepreneurship. The harbor city’s geographical location as a main trading center has cemented its role as a key player in the German economy.

There’s also been a recent boom in Hamburg’s startup ecosystem, with significant investments, a growing number of coworking spaces, and curious entrepreneurs moving in to explore the new, hip soul of the city.


Our Startup Guide Hamburg book is filled with city-focused tips, startups, coworking spaces, programs and interviews with founders as well as experts. It gives you all the information you need to get you started in the Hanseatic town.
