MARITIME INNOVATIONEN: Im Herzen des Hamburger Hafens entsteht ein Reallabor für ambitionierte Hafenakteure aus der Metropolregion

Wer in der Metropolregion an Zukunftslösungen für die maritime Wirtschaft und die Logistik im Hamburger Hafen arbeitet, findet dafür seit Anfang des Jahres im homeport Hamburg den entsprechenden Freiraum.

Akteure aus Wissenschaft, Technologieunternehmen und Startups können in dem mitten im Hafen gelegenen Reallabor die Umsetzung von Ideen ausprobieren, experimentieren und kollaborieren. Ab Mitte des Jahres folgt dann der physische Innovationscampus samt Makerspace.

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.
