What is the focus?

All joining partners help shape the focus of the program. The Hamburg program will focus on startups in the wider field of transport. That involves maritime, shipping, logistics, supply chain, and also things that could be applied to the above, like data optimization, predictions, traceability, automation, hardware innovation, etc.  See the list of preliminary topics below and let us know what you are interested in.

We are launching soon

Startupbootcamp Transport Hamburg is already backed by the following major global leaders: Cargotec, Wärtsilä, and Inmarsat. In addition the European Space Agency and HHLA will support Startupbootcamp Hamburg as program’s associates. All partners allow Startupbootcamp to provide expertise, market exposure, and access to a network of company professionals that most early-stage transport startups would not be able to otherwise access.

The accelerator will be led by the world-class team consisting of a managing director, head of operations and head of marketing who will drive the program for the benefit of joining partners and startups.
