Being in India the first time is extremely overwhelming. Business is being done much differently from Europe and also accessing interesting companies and start-ups from the mobility sector would have been so much more effort without the support of Hamburg Representation Mumbai. The prior-to my visit research and recommendations and moreover the local support in India were extremely useful and helped to understand the local mobility ecosystem and the relevant players. You would think that in times of the internet, this isn’t the case anymore but you’d be wrong.- Sebastian Hofer INNOVATION MANAGER, HAMBURGER HOCHBAHN AG
