What a successful start. For the 5th edition of the Maritime Start-up Night and in cooperation with SMM Hamburg, a number of 16 start-ups from 13 nations competed against each other. In the categories „Digital“, „Hardware Performance“, „Inspection“ and Marketplace, the young entrepreneurs presented their solutions and products to the international trade fair audience.

Our jury of maritime industry experts finally selected the winner of the SMM Maritime Start-up Awards 2022. Congratulations to Jörn Springer and his team from Ankeri.
