On the go with Christian Kuper & Topias Rohde

Christian Kuper left his past as a corporate consultant far behind him. Since 2014, the new Hamburg local and convinced vegan sells exclusively vegan meals (including vegan curry sausage, burgers, and sweet potato chips) in his food truck "Vincent Vegan" together with Topias Rohde, likewise manager of the company. Together, the two gourmets are trying to develop something lasting. Every Wednesday in Ottensen, when their food truck opens on Spritzenplatz, they see that their concept is being accepted well, especially because Hamburg residents are placing increasing value on fresh ingredients without flavour enhancers or additives.

As a cook and hotel manager, Hannes Arendholz feels perfectly at home in the kitchen. The restaurateur recently founded the Hamburg start-up Foodboom, together with Sebastian Heinz. Foodboom is an online platform on which a number of cooks, camera operators, food stylists and photographs regularly present healthy recipes in short videos. Foodboom's message is clear: Cooking should be fun, easy, and the results tasty.

Hamburg like a local On the go with Monika Köver

When she was studying at the university, it was already clear to the young designer that she prefers wearing clothes she has designed herself rather than items from department stores. That's why she recently developed her own label - Lies in Layers - together with her long-time friend and former classmate Katrin Krieschbach.
