Research on Hamburg’s Entrepreneurial Ecosystem published

Recently, my thesis from 2016 on Hamburg’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and the regional public policy agenda to foster entrepreneurship was published as an ebook. It is now available on all major platforms, such as Amazon, Apple iBooks, Google Play, Tolino etc. Since this process took a long time, it is not my most recent publication, but still a good reference point about the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem in Hamburg at the time. Abstract: Entrepreneurship, more specifically the formation of tech startups, is […]

Sashimi Platter at Matsumi

Again I went to Matsumi some time ago, my absolute favourite Sushi restaurant in Hamburg, Germany. It is located in the Collonaden near to the Jungfernstieg at the inner Alster river and I highly recommend it for the most amazing sushi. I don’t know any better place. We got seats at the sushi bar and started out with some very nice side dishes and a sake kava temaki (grilled salmon skin hand roll), which is my absolute favourite hand roll at Matsumi. They […]

Tower of Power live at the Fabrik in Hamburg 2015

On December 9 2015 epic recording artist Tower of Power from Oakland, California, was showing off their awesome tower groove and world’s best horn section at the Fabrik in Hamburg.

Trying on the Apple Watch

Starting today, the Apple Watch can be preordered online and is available for try-on-sessions in local retail stores with an appointment. Appointments can be made on online or via the Apple Store iOS App since 9:01 AM this morning (April 10 2015). Apparently things are not as bad as expected, since I got a slot at 11 AM and the store was far from crowded. Looks like the demand is not that crazy after all. I really like the way they chose […]

ESSO buildings Reeperbahn

The “Esso Buildings” (Esso Häuser) have been demolished

While walking down the Reeperbahn the other night, I realised that the “Esso Buildings” (Esso Häuser) have been demolished already. If you are interested in how it came to that, I recommend Initiative Esso Häuser for some additional reading. Basically, it was a building complex created in the 1960ies with some clubs (e.g. Molotow) and stores on the Spielbudenplatz as well as cheap apartments for low income tenants. In 2009 it was sold to Bayerischen Hausbau GmbH & Co. KG with plans for a […]

Tuna Sashimi at Matsumi

Being back in Hamburg for just a few days, I stopped by at Matsumi, my all time favourite Japanese Restaurant, for some delicious Sashimi. In fact, it was a gigantic sashimi platter with the finest assortment of fish selected by sushi chef Hideaki Morita.The tuna repertoire was of particular grandiosity. It was (from left to right) Toro, O-toro, Chūtoro and Hara-Toro.
