We are all living in turbulent times. More than ever, cities play a crucial role in addressing some of today’s most challenging questions. Hamburg is one of the most liveable cities and a magnet for companies, investors, startups and young talent – and thus the perfect place to realise your ideas. At the same time, all major cities are facing considerable challenges, such as the task of developing innovative mobility solutions and tackling climate change. Israel features a higher startup-per-capita rate than any other country in the world. For many years, great efforts have been made at city and national levels to consolidate and accelerate the country‘s transformation towards a science and innovation nation. Tel Aviv, Israel‘s startup hotspot, is therefore an ideal partner for Hamburg's startup scene.
