The Senate Chancellery's GovTecHH project is Hamburg's first point of contact for startups that wish to collaborate with the administration. ‘Government technology’ (short ‘gov tech’) is a cipher for digital technologies and innovative solutions with emphasis on the public sector. It allows Hamburg to increase its cooperation with startups.
CEO of SUMM AI GmbH“GovTecHH was the ideal "foot in the door" for us as a young tech startup to gain our first major client in the public sector. The quick referral to a user with real interest in our solution and the effective communication all around was particularly cool. That enabled our AI-based plain language tool to be deployed for hamburg.de in record time!”© Summ AI GmbH
We network Hamburg administration’s with gov tech solutions and accompany the entire collaboration process from needs assessment to the legally-compliant awarding of contracts and first implementation.
Contact for startups
We shed light into the darkness whether in technical or organizational terms. We navigate the peculiarities of cooperation between startups and the administration.
We back continuous exchange between Hamburg's administration and the technology and startup scene and arrange for experts to offer advice e.g., on startup funding.
