The Forum for Internet Entrepreneurs
Networking - Lectures - Internet professionals


The eBizzTalk is a meeting point for digital masterminds in Hamburg. Whether decision makers from the upper echelon of traditional companies or emerging founders – they all share the passion for the internet.

Once per quarter Hanse Ventures invites two personalities to glance at their career and potential secrets of success. The speeches are mostly „off the record“ and cover personal stories, ups and downs, second chances as well as new beginnings.

The lectures are followed by informal networking. Strengthened by finger food and drinks, the guests exchange with each other as well as with the speakers and can thus gain interesting insights for their own career.

The eBizzTalk was founded in 1999 by Jochen Maass, CEO of the company builder Hanse Ventures. What started as a regular’s table became a renowned and respected event in Hamburg`s digital scene. More than 120 people meet regularly to network on Hanse Ventures’ roof top terrace opposite the Elbphilharmony in the Hamburg HafenCity.

The eBizzTalk is free of charge but by invitation only.


As always, the right mixture is key for an interesting evening. Therefore, the speakers are representing online as well as offline companies. Rather than tiring company presentations, the event’s focus lies on the speaker’s personal career. And due to their different backgrounds often exciting discussions arise and each guest can broaden his or her mind.
