STARTUPS@REEPERBAHN – FOURTH EDITION

For the fourth year running, September will be the hottest month of the year in Hamburg. Startups from across Europe once again have the opportunity to passionately present their businesses to over 100 investors and investment managers and compete for the WELT Media Prize – a media budget of €100,000.

The flair of the Kiez area of Hamburg and a top-class audience made up of investors, corporates, journalists and multipliers from the German digital and media sector await the participants with unique networking opportunities and face-to-face talks.

Close contact for business

This year again sees the finalists having the opportunity to meet with the investors present on the same evening for an ‘intimate’ business date in our ‘startup love boxes’ – those who do a good job of selling their business idea could well join our list of previous winning teams and lay the foundations for important deals in the future.

MUSIC MEETS START-UPS

What do music, start-ups and the Kiez area of Hamburg have in common? Simple: musicians and start-ups share the same spirit: having the right team that shares the same vision and that works hard to be successful, and eventually reach the masses. The Kiez area of Hamburg is creative, boundless and authentic – making it the best place to perform. A unique mixture that allows for a very personal and unusual format that brings together start-ups and investors. Startups@Reeperbahn is the most successful and attention-grabbing event in the start-up scene in northern Germany.

It was started in 2013 by Hamburg Startups and organised in cooperation with the Reeperbahn Festival. The previous winners Tinnitracks, TripRebel and Antelope have received many more prizes and nominations. The Reeperbahn Festival is Germany’s biggest club festival and counts amongst the three most important venues for the music and digital economy in Europe. There are over 700 items in the programme for 21 to 24 September that cover a wide range of sectors in more than 70 locations on and around the Reeperbahn in Hamburg.

About Hamburg Startups

Hamburg Startups is the leading start-up platform in the media-city of Hamburg and is committed to effective networking and representation in the start-up scene. The port city of Hamburg has become a benchmark for many European locations with an ecosystem that Hamburg Startups has significantly helped to build up over the last four years. Alongside a variety of unusual event formats, founders Sina Gritzuhn and Sanja Stankovic created the Hamburg Startup Monitor platform which gives a transparent representation of all start-ups. Since 2014 start-ups have been offered the chance to take part in a unique start-up panel and use the Relation Tool to get in contact with journalists, investors and cooperating partners. The aim of Hamburg Startups is to raise the national and international visibility of the Hamburg start-up scene. In February 2016 the first study of the Hamburg startup ecosystem was published. The founders are currently working on a national concept.
