Moin Moin & Ahoi! Leaving home and working from a new city might be a challenge many teams starting a new business have to face. When opportunity calls you should consider relocation.  To your luck, the opportunity we offer as NMA to media startups to come to the hanseatic city is pretty amazing because let’s be honest, not all the cities are that attractive at a very first sight.  Did you know that Hamburg has been many times selected as one of the best cities to live (globally!) ?  Having said that I hope I made it clear: pack your suitcase and join us in Hamburg! 

Our city has lots more to offer than just a nice panoramic view to the harbor and the party neighborhood in Reeperbahn. You can find in the lines below five out of  thousand reasons why you will love your experience with us in Hamburg:

We are the media capital of Germany

    • Hamburg is home of big industry leaders such as Facebook, Twitter and Google. You will feel like a fish in water.
    • No other German city records such a high number of relevant and profitable branches of the media industry as Hamburg. Hamburg is a media city with a great tradition: leading political magazines, tabloid newspapers, weekly magazines and Germany’s leading television news were all created in Hamburg. Yet the city continues to excel not only in the realms of journalism, but also in the spheres of music and film, as well as the advertising and PR industries >> ( Read more @ nextmediaHamburg website)
