My good friend Sanja Stankovic, together with Sinna Gritzuhn co-founder and Managing Director of Hamburg-startups ( have honored me as Board of Trustee of the 4th Edition of Startups@reeperbahn.

The Startups@Reeperbahn Pitch will again give five fantastic startups from throughout Europe the opportunity to present their business, right on the Reeperbahn in Hamburg. And as a “wahlhamburgerin” can tell you that few places epitomize Hamburg better than the Reeperbahn, the city’s red light district.

Participants can look forward to the opportunity of taking home a noteworthy first prize of €100,000 media budget in German media – the WELT MEDIAPRICE. To carry on a tradition, the investors attending the event will, the very same evening, whisk the pitch participants off for a more intimate business tête-à-tête. The pitch will take place from 6 pm to 9 pm on 21 September, the business tête-à-tête will happen directly after.

How to get there and be one of the five finalists? Apply till August 19th under and good luck.

You might be soon following in the footsteps of Tinnitracks, Triprebel and Antelope, the last winning teams. Me and the other Board of Trustees and Jury members are looking forward to welcoming all participants and encouraging them to further pursue their endeavors.
