Our proposition for start-ups

Hamburg@work is first and foremost a network for businesses and entrepreneurs who are already established in the market, in other words for those who have already progressed beyond the first phases in the life-cycle of a business. Such businesses will have normally already been trading for more than five years.

Every successful start-up begins with an innovative idea, a highly motivated team of founders and often meager financial resources. Many company founders are lacking entrepreneurial experience. This is where Hamburg@work comes into its own with its StartUp Club:

Within a network of established businesses, start-ups find answers to many questions that can only be answered by those with sufficient entrepreneurial experience.

Hamburg@work therefore applies the above progressive fee scale to start-ups, to reflect the business development of a young enterprise. Hamburg@work categorizes “its” start-ups according to the four generally recognized development phases of a young enterprise: Pre-Seed, Seed Phase, Start-Up Phase, Emerging Growth and Expansion. For every phase the membership fee is appropriate and affordable.

And the best part of it: All company founders are automatically given the rank of CXO GoldStatus and therefore also invited to the CXO events of Hamburg@work.


Notes on membership options

CXO Status at Hamburg@work is for those individuals filed with a court of registration who are authorized to manage and represent companies, the first management level of a company at C-level, holders of professorial chairs, members of senates and governments, consular and diplomatic representatives, and selected individuals with comparable spheres of responsibility. Members with CXO Status receive a CXO GoldCard as their membership card.

Our   membership options for individuals are aimed at natural persons such as sole traders (non-merchants/ small traders), retailers, the self-employed / self-employed professions, freelancers, private individuals, students and trainees.

Our membership options for businesses are aimed at all legal entities, e.g. limited liability companies, stock corporations, European companies, corporate bodies, public bodies, partnerships, registered associations, foundations and all corporate forms resembling legal entities.

Premium Memberships constitute regular membership within the meaning of the Articles of Association of Hamburg@work (e.V.). Association benefits are not transferable to other individuals or enterprises. Termination of a Premium Membership is normally subject to notice periods that are normally three months to the end of the fee year. 

Premium Plus is the extended option from Hamburg@work for large and very large enterprises. The number of personal membership cards issued is by definition higher than for the other membership forms. In addition, from the end of 2018 we can automatically grant employees of your company who have free Basic Flex membership access to our Premium Plus option based on the domain of their corporate e-mail address. This membership arrangement increases the price discount for Basic Flex members from 25 percent to 50 percent.
