“This initiative really fills a gap in Hamburg’s entrepreneurial landscape. We have been able to benefit from various events that May-Lena and her team enabled us to participate in. It goes almost without saying that we also gained huge exposure through the awarding of the Webfuture Award. nextMedia.Startup also stands out for the support it offers to anyone seeking to launch a business. While founding my own business I would have appreciated the support of such a service provider, and it is therefore all the better that it does exist now.”
