Corporate Venturing 🚀 : What significance do accelerators play?
This week at the Startup Finance and Corporate Venturing conference at the HSBA (Hamburg School of Business Administration) we heard various perspectives on how accelerators fit into the ecosystem 🔄 .
Insightful talks and podium discussions were by one of our mentors, Dr. Heiko Milde (CEO Innovationsstarter Fond Hamburg GmbH), Jan Brorhilker (Partner Ernst & Young), Dr. John Lange (CEO Axel Springer Digital GmbH) and Dr. Harald Vogelsang (chairman of Finanzplatz Hamburg e.V.) as patron. Three takeaways about the Hamburg startup location:
1. Previous startup exits are very mature 👑
2. Strong proof of concept 🌹
3. Many startups have a laser focused business model ⛳️
