The Scaleup Landing Pad Hamburg is aimed at young innovative clean tech businesses looking to solve major sustainability challenges in the sectors of mobility, logistics, energy and building, including corresponding fields such as AI, block chain, hydrogen, etc. As Germany's mobility and logistics hub, centre of the northern German hydrogen ecosystem and home to Europe's largest inner-city development project, Hamburg is better suited than any other location to scale clean tech solutions. The Landing Pad makes it easier than ever to set foot in Germany and Europe. 

Any scaleup with a solution in the sectors outlined above can apply, if they:
● have a proven product-market fit in their home market 
● are in a strong growth phase 
● have yet to expand into the German market 
● want to unlock Hamburg’s ecosystem for scaling their business  

The Landing Pad is conducted by Hamburg Invest on behalf of Hamburg’s Ministry of Economy and Innovation. Their aim is to make the city’s strengths and advantages visible to international scaleups and to foster innovation and future-oriented projects in Hamburg.
