A few questions for Rey Buckman:
Which improvements do you want for the Hamburg startup-scene?
The startup community is fluorishing. In parallel, there is the need for a stronger business angel network and more cross industry innovation initiatives.
Do you have a preference for any startup category?
Aerospace and aviation is our focus, but we extend our search fields to all technology startups with a strong scale potential. At the same time, we believe that scalable innovation must also be sustainable innovation. This is a strong focus of our acceleration programme in all its phases, from scouting to implementation.
Which events shouldn’t be missed?
Aircraft Interiors Expo, Hamburg Innovation Summit, Reeperbahn pitch!
Which startup or company fascinates you the most at the moment?
There are a lot of fascinating startups that place the UN SDGs as part of their DNA and work for a better world for everyone and everywhere. I would not pick one now, but ask for more of this kind. We need a new sustainable chapter in the market.
