Willkommen & Välkommen!

Thank you for dropping by. Probably you were already part of our participatory process to create 040x040 that started in August, 2014. If not- let me fill you in.

040x040 is a new tailor-made event format initiated by IT‘S THE GLUE bringing together creators & innovators from Malmö and Hamburg. 

040x040 is quite a matter of the heart to me. Since my utbytes/exchange student days at K3 Malmö Högskola back in the early 2000s, I made a bunch of new friends in Malmö and experienced the city as rather stimulating. The concept of a Digital Bauhaus sticks with me until today. 

It took The Conference 2014 and a conversation with Magnus Thure Nilsson to come up with the idea of an exchange program between Hamburg and Malmö. Well, seven months later I am happy to present you 040x040- the exchange program for brilliant people between Hamburg and Malmö:

Our aim is to facilitate a personal experience including two days of exchange, creative work- and jam sessions, visits of noteworthy companies, networking & matchmaking, Schnitzel, beer and party!

040x040 is a double-impact initiative with serial events in Hamburg and Malmö. We seek to foster sustainable relationships between creative people from Hamburg, Malmö and in-between.

I hope you will join us on this exciting journey. Feel free to contact me directly if you should have any questions.
