Job: CEO for the “Next Logistics Accelerator” (m/f)
The “Next Logistics Accelerator” (NLA) offers a 6-month acceleration program in Hamburg for disruptive LogTech start-ups (with a focus on Warehousing, Internet of Things, Transport and Adjacent Service – “WIOTTA”) from Europe and Israel. Hamburg is a prime location for a logistics accelerator with it housing the 2nd best port in the world (per annual ranking by the World Economic Forum), with leading logistics companies such as Hapag-Lloyd, Hermes and Kühne & Nagel having their headquarters in the city and with there being over 12000 companies focused on logistics. These companies are all desperate for “Innovation as a Service” delivered by start-ups offering them new, disruptive approaches in the digital world. The NLA was initiated by the Haspa and the Logistics-Initiative (consisting of approx. 550 leading logistics members) who offer the perfect platform with which one can access the logistics companies of the city. The NLA is funded by 10 world-leading logistics companies who will provide an ideal network in which ambitious start-ups can test their products. The program takes in 5 new start-ups every 6-months (with potentially an extra optional month in Asia) and offers, in addition to the program, cash of up to EUR 50k for 3-10% equity in the start-ups.
