The Future Hamburg Award 2021 calls on startups for the city of the future

This year, the Future Hamburg Award is also welcoming new partners – Plug and Play, homePORT, and Am Hafen Capital. Could you briefly describe these collaborations and its benefits for startups?

[…] They are highly visible with their office in Hamburg, they contribute their outstanding expertise and an excellent international network, and they also provide one of the prizes: the winning startup will be able to join a one-month international programme by Plug and Play in Silicon Valley. Likewise, we will provide one winning startup with access to Hamburg’s vibrant startup ecosystem – with homePORT, the Hamburg Port Authority’s innovation campus, as well as Am Hafen Capital GmbH as a major VC. These two players establish the link to Hamburg and will facilitate the implementation of test models in the port and might even provide an up to €1 million in funding.
