Our next big event is in the pipeline:

We are happy to host the GAN Momentum tour of the Global Accelerator Network from October 9th to 10th in Hamburg. It’s a five-stop international tour (Pittsburgh, Lima, Manama, Hong Kong and Hamburg) that will focus on connecting startups as well as helping them to succeed and gain traction around the globe. Are you ready to take a deep dive into the startup ecosystem? On October 9th and 10th events will be accessible with tickets.

What is in in for me?

Two days filled with panels, speakers and networking for the startup community: Hamburg founder originals Tarek Müller of ABOUT YOU and Philipp Westermeyer of Online Marketing Rockstars one of Europe’s biggest conferences/festivals for digital marketers will take the stage. Also, buckle up for some female founder power: Cécile Wickmann of the vintage marketplace REBELLE and Hanna Marie Asmussen of Localyze — a relocation service for expats will share their founder stories. There will be keynotes and panels on both the German and the European startup ecosystem.

You will get two events in one ticket:

Networking Happy Hour at WeWork

We kickstart with Momentum Happy Hour from 06.00 pm to 08.00 pm on October 9th at WeWork Europa Passage. At the co-working space and epicenter for creative ideas, you will be able to network within the startup community.

GAN Momentum Day on October 10th

On the next following day to the Happy Hour — October 10th — the GAN Momentum Day takes place. For a full day accelerators, startups, investors and media experts gather at the VRHQ for the biggest event of the GAN Momentum Tour in Hamburg. From 09.00 am to 05.00 pm founder stories, knowledge swapping and a whole lot of networking will make the event space come to life.

In a nutshell: Don’t miss out on the key player event of the month in Hamburg. Of course not only startups, but also members of accelerators, investors and industry professionals are invited to join. We still got some tickets available.
