European and International Startups must pay attention, this could change their launching period and possibly propel the business to desired heights.

It’s very common to come by startup related news, but this particular news has caught our attention. It’s and initiative by Hamburg Marketing and Hamburg Invest who have launched an awards as part of the HAMBURG FESTIVAL. For those who don’t know, the HAMBURG FESTIVAL is a one-of-a-kind pop-up event in Shoreditch aimed at showcasing one of the world’s most liveable cities through its vibrant music and festival scene.

The initiative which is titled as the “FUTURE HAMBURG AWARD” provides international startups with the opportunity to benefit from the city’s thriving digital scene and to expand their European business. Sounds great and we encourage all readers who are “startupers” (this is a word which we just invented) to dig more deeply into the subject, because it could be a life altering moment for them.

Startups are invited to apply from now until January 5, 2019 and have the possibility to win a package which includes six months at a Hamburg coworking space and a series of coaching sessions from the city’s startup-ecosystem. Sound good! But wait, that’s not all, the best startup will also have the opportunity to pitch at the OMR Festival in May 2019, which has an audience of more than 40,000 tech geeks, sorry tech professionals. Additionally, all winners will receive a media package to help them broaden their European marketing reach. Not saying this is something unique, but it’s still a good reward for sharing you contacts to them (wink wink)

Since you are still here, let us teach you something. Hamburg has one of Europe’s best startup ecosystems and the city is home to international players like Jimdo, MyTaxi, and Xing. Event the mighty Google, Facebook and Twitter have head offices here which makes Hamburg, Germany’s leading location for the media and creative industries. As a powerhouse for future industries – such as aviation, life sciences, and logistics – the city offers an ideal business environment for startups.
