Welcome to the Fintech Agency

As a trading city, Hamburg has always relied on its reputation as a place which is open to the world. In view of this, its business community has a strong tradition of welcoming new enterprises – and new entrepreneurs – a tradition that we aim to continue by helping Fintechs both from elsewhere in Germany and from further afield to set up here. While no two companies are alike, they nevertheless share many similarities as a function of their stage of development. That’s why we have structured our Fintech Agency offering into four phases. If you have any questions, our team is here to help you make Hamburg into your home base in the German market. Just contact us.
