Körber invests in Next Logistics Accelerator

The logistics location Hamburg is enriched by a new innovation driver: the Next Logistics Accelerator (NLA). Körber is, among other well-known industry leaders, an early investor. Initiators of the NLA are Hamburger Sparkasse and the Hamburg Logistics Initiative.

European start-ups with disruptive business models from the so-called "WIOTTA" areas "Warehousing", "Internet of Things", "Transport" and "Adjacent Services" can apply to the NLA. After successfully completing the application phase, the NLA supports start-ups with up to €50,000 in equity capital. The NLA business model is based on minority shareholdings of up to ten percent, which are agreed depending on the level of support. Within a six-month program, the start-ups receive not only capital, but also direct access to the market, mentors and other investors and receive individual coaching.

In addition to Körber, companies such as Jungheinrich, Helm, HHLA and Fiege are involved as well. From an organizational point of view, the participation in the NLA will be part of the Business Area Corporate Ventures at the Group.
