Dear reader, LinkedIn Twitter Xing

The middle class in particular is coming under pressure to face the challenges of digitalisation. The HSBA Digital Innovation Lab was recently founded in Hamburg to allow new business models to be conceived without an agenda. The Hamburg School of Business Administration (HSBA) offers companies in the Chamber of Commerce’s Innovation Campus (HKIC) an opportunity to develop digital business concepts detached from daily business. A series by Hamburg News will highlight how business sectors in Hamburg are adjusting to digitalisation.

This news and other topics from Hamburg and its metropolitan region will be featured in this week’s edition of our newsletter. All topics mentioned therein are summaries of news presented in depth on the business platform Hamburg News. You can access the bilingual platform at
