The Webfuture Award from nextMedia.Hamburg, the Hamburg initiative for media, IT and telecommunications, is the start-up competition for Hamburg and the metropolitan region.
The aim of the competition is to offer a platform to committed young entrepreneurs with innovative ideas. The Webfuture Award thus ensures a close link to actual work practice and specifically promotes exchange and cooperation between creative start-ups and leading industry representatives. Target groups are established start-ups, founders, press and investors. The competition is part of the eCommerceCity action programme of nextMedia.Hamburg (formerly Hamburg@work).
Since 2006, FAKTOR 3 has organised the successful event and is responsible for the entire project management, communication, invitation management, implementation and press work. Last year the successful format was relaunched under the title nextMedia.elevator: http://www.nextmedia-hamburg.de/events/eigene-events/nextmediaelevator/
