You’re all set up and now it’s time to start settling in. One of the most important things for you is to build up your network in Hamburg.
Thanks to its compact size, the Hamburg Fintech scene is tightly networked. Regular formats such as the Fintech Lounge, the FinTech-Meetup, and 12min.me Finance meets Tech offer plenty of opportunities for informal exchanges; then there is the annual Fintech Week which brings the whole industry together. Our events calendar provides an overview of what is going on. Meanwhile, the Finanzplatz Hamburg initiative run by participants in the city’s finance industry strengthens ties between Fintechs and the established finance industry, putting the development of Hamburg as a place to do all kinds of financial business at the top of its agenda and bringing together the entire sector.
At this stage, another important issue for you will be recruitment. As a trading city with a strong media profile, Hamburg has no shortage of professional sales and marketing people; it has also developed a lively gaming scene. Companies can list vacancies on Jobbörse, the web-based service run by the state employment agency Arbeitsagentur, or on the Hamburg-specific Yojo (Young Jobs) portal for young people coming into the labour market.
Our team will be happy to help you with the challenges of the coming weeks and months. We look forward to hearing from you and wish you a good start in the Hamburg Fintech scene.
