Scaleup Landing Pad Hamburg: Calling for GreenTech Scaleups in 2023!

What is the key to shaping smart cities and a better future for populations all over the world? In the face of climate change, the answer has to relate to sustainability. But being sustainable tomorrow implies tackling today’s challenges. This premise leads us to pressing issues:

  • How will people and goods move around sustainably without losing efficiency?
  • How can cities meet their growing energy demands without sacrificing ecological standards?
  • How can we build climate resistant and smart cities in the face of global warming?

Innovation is needed – and innovation is what Germany’s smartest city, Hamburg, offers via the Landing Pad programme

Launched last summer to help young international companies scale their business in Germany and Europe, the Scaleup Landing Pad Hamburg is now calling for international scaleups to join their next batch in Hamburg.

The Landing Pad supports this goal with a menu of individually attributed incentives and services worth up to 50,000€ that match each scaleup’s needs. From business development to matchmaking actions with key business players or private accommodation and offices in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region, companies receive the support they need to grow across the European markets. 



‘The challenges that we have for international expansion are meeting the right partners in the right market at the right time. And the Scaleup Landing Pad Hamburg is making all three of these possible by the introduction to the ecosystem for green hydrogen and enabling us to reach out to fitting stakeholders for our stage of expansion.’

The success of last year’s edition of the programme is also a result of the close interaction between all SCALE Cities, with the mission to address the challenges that arise from globalization. 

Hamburg, home to sustainable transition and for scaling innovative businesses

To scale GreenTech solutions within the mobility, logistics, energy and construction sectors, Hamburg is one of the leading business locations in Europe. The city boasts a 90% digitized harbor – Europe’s third largest seaport -, is strategically located at the intersection between Northern and Central Europe, offers established test fields for Intelligent Transport Systems and for the use of Green Hydrogen and it is also home to 20+ Universities that fuel this innovation potential even more. 

You can make a difference with the help of Hamburg. And you, too, can grow by taking part in the Scaleup Landing Pad Hamburg. Apply until 30 April 2023 on the program website for your chance to make Hamburg your landing – and launching – pad
