5 panelists discuss the future of community at the Factory Hammerbrooklyn Launch Event.

Storytime with Emil and Zamina – 2Hearts Hamburg Meetup


May 30th 2024
17:15 – 20:00


Factory Hammerbrooklyn
Community Hub

Behind every startup, there is a story of perseverance and hard work. Behind every founder, a path punctuated with highs and lows, struggles and victories.

Join us for the inaugural meetup of the Hamburg 2hearts Chapter, an evening discussion followed by a networking session as we dive into this topic alongside founders Zamina Ahmad and Emil Beck.

● What about founders coming from an immigration background?
● What’s special about the path they followed towards achieving their entrepreneurial dream?
● Did they feel like playing the game ‘’on hard mode’’ from the get-go?
● Was it rather a stigma or perhaps at times an advantage, as they built and scaled their venture in Germany and beyond?
● What lessons can be learned from the paths they followed, especially for others who aspire to create companies and have roots abroad?

Places are limited to 45. First come first serve.


Target Group

​The aim of this event is to bring together young professionals from an immigration background to learn, share and connect around the topic of diversity in tech and startup entrepreneurship.
