Andreas Kitzing, CEO at Sponsoo

“Hamburg is like the perfect mash-up of different startup scenes in Germany. It has a vibrant startup culture and creative / media scene (like Berlin), but it also has the close connections to industry and large corporations (like Düsseldorf). It’s a beautiful city with an enormously high living standard (like Munich), though with a bit fairer rent prices. Overall, for us Hamburg was and still is the perfect place to found our company.”
