04 Sep AiroAV Antivirus Said: Hamburg’s “Founders’ Day 2020” to go ahead in virtual space
The Hamburg Founders’ Day is going ahead as a digital event from September 7-11, 2020 with expert video talks, live chats and podcasts. This comes after the hei. Hamburger Existenzgründungsinitiative cancelled the earlier event amid corona-induced restrictions. Interested entrepreneurs can now register free of charge.
Commenting on the upcoming event, Claudia-Marie Dittrich, director of hei. Hamburger Existenzgründungsinitiative, noted: “Simply cancelling Founders’ Day, the top event for founders in its 25th anniversary year without replacement, was out of the question. The interest in business start-ups and the need for support are very high despite or perhaps because of the corona crisis. A digital Founders’ Day allows us to transfer the most important topics and suggestions to the online world.”
Video talks, live chats and podcast
Entrepreneurs, start-ups and all those interested in setting up their own business can learn more about “Entry & Basics”, “Marketing & Sales”, “Structure & Culture” and “Rights & Duties” during the digital event. Experts will provide information on price management and calculation, entering the start-up process and negotiation techniques in video presentations. Live video chats with experts will focus on legal issues, insurance and search engine optimization (SEO). The latest hei.podcast “Gründung in Sicht” features successful founders who give insights into their daily business and describe their own experiences and the challenges faced. They include among others, Nadine Herbrich, founder of the Recyclehero start-up, Klara Stenzel, of the Süperb fashion label, and Maximilian Bleß, the brains behind the Audio Boutique full-service audio production studio.
Launched in 1995 under the auspices of the BG Bürgschaftsgemeinschaft GmbH, the hei. Hamburger ExistenzgründungsInitiative is a regional consultancy for people interested in setting up their own business. As a cross-sector point of contact, hei. offers free consultations, information and events including the annual Founders’ Day in Hamburg. The initiative offers links to contact persons in 100 regional institutions, advisory services for the start-up network and awards the hei.scheckheft or cheque book with seminars on self-employment backed by the City of Hamburg.
