Frankfurt Hub

The Frankfurt Hub is a vibrant community of individuals committed to take action. Action that fosters innovation, collaboration and smart solutions for current and future challenges of our society.

With our format, the NEXT B2B FORUM, and our strong network, we bring key stakeholder at one table to foster innovation in various industries like finance, mobility, media, healthcare and HR through. 

Our social project SHAPING PATHWAYS helps underrepresented groups in business (refugees, people with disabilities, women in leadership, LGBT and people from disadvantaged backgrounds) gaining self-confidence and support to succeed in the world of work. 

In all what we do, we put our core values, HELP, TRUST and RESPECT at the center of our actions. In addition, we believe in the power of a strong network and empowerment of others. Therefore, we work closely together with other hubs in Germany and beyond to increase our impact. Local action, global impact.
