The Chamber of Commerce Hamburg is hosting a day for founders and would-be start-ups on Saturday (March 25, 2018) from 9 am to 6 pm. Experts and entrepreneurs will give some 30 keynotes and hold panel discussions focusing on planning, setting up a business, online marketing, copyrighted protection of ideas, financing and grants, tax and legal issues.
Overview and networking
Held in co-operation with IFB Hamburgische Investitions- und Förderbank, hei. Hamburger ExistenzgründungsInitiative and the Chamber of Crafts Hamburg, the 23rd Hamburger Gründertag offers a venue for interacting with successful founders from all over Hamburg and Germany. Tobias Bergmann, Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, said: “We want founders in Hamburg to get started and to contribute to the economic diversity and innovative capability in Hamburg. Those interested in founding a company and fledgling firms can get an overview of offers in the city, attend exciting keynotes and above all meet other founders and entrepreneurs on founders’ day.”
Start-ups in lounge
Around 50 exhibitors including founders’ initiatives, advice centres, associations, banks, start-ups, chambers as well as colleges and universities will be on hand in the Chamber of Commerce. A pop up-space will zoom in on co-working spaces in the city. Josef Katzer, President of the Chamber of Crafts, said: “We also want to encourage those who are unsure whether becoming self-employed is the right step: Get tips and advice at founders’ day.” This year’s highlights include a lounge where 14 Hamburg start-ups will present their businesses and outline challenges, as well as setbacks and successes. Speed dating is also scheduled and will give founders an opportunity to network.
Delegates at the meet-up include Bastian Muschke, founder of Caté coffee and lemonade, Sandra Andreas, owner of Pâtisserie Andreas, Maya Ziob of Lilleliten Design and Fridtjof Detzner and his Jimdo team, who are sponsoring the lounge.
