Abstract

The brothers Augustus Friedrich and Gustav Adolph Vorwerk deserve a closer look at their biographies not only because of the generosity with which they supported the Hamburgische Wissenschaftliche Stiftung (Hamburg Scientific Foundation) as donors, but also because of their commercial activities. Together with their father Georg Friedrich Vorwerk - who founded companies first in Hamburg, then in Chile - they pushed forward the Hamburg and Chilean economies. In the suburbs of Klein Flottbek and Nienstedten, the father and the two sons Vorwerk had stately villas built, which to this day are among the remarkable buildings of Hamburg.

Abstract

In 1857, the young Hamburg merchant Gustav Amsinck set off for the United States. In the booming metropolis of New York, he expanded his brother's "goods commission and banking business" with skill, diligence and a wealth of ideas. Under his aegis, G. Amsinck & Co. survived revolts in South America, attempts to defraud, and shipwrecks. In addition to its core business which consisted especially of sugar and coffee trading the merchant banker also invested in new barrel tyre patents, prefabricated houses and was involved in the construction of the Panama Canal. Privately, Gustav Amsinck appreciates the beautiful arts and traveling. When the Hamburgische Wissenschaftliche Stiftung came into being in 1907, he was one of its most important donors. This biography traces the rise of this man, who achieved prestige and wealth with Hanseatic merchants' virtues in the land of unlimited possibilities.

Abstract

The company Behn Meyer Deutschland Holding AG & Co. KG, headquartered at Ballindamm in Hamburg, is one of the most traditional trading houses in the Hanseatic city. Among other things, it sells rubber chemicals for the European market. In the company's history there have been a number of well-known personalities such as Arnold Otto Meyer and Franz Heinrich Witthoefft. Eduard Lorenz Lorenz-Meyer, who is one of the donors of the Hamburg Scientific Foundation, has always been somewhat in the shadows. However, if the focus is not primarily on economic aspects, but also on political and cultural aspects, a very multi-faceted life is evident.

Abstract

Mobile Commerce has gained increasing acceptance amongst various sections of the society in previous years. The reasons for its growth can be traced back to technological and demographical developments that have influenced many aspects of the socio-cultural behaviour in today's world. The need (and/or wish) for mobility seems to be the driving force behind Mobile Commerce. The launch of UMTS technology has provided Mobile Commerce with the necessary verve.Mobile Banking presents an opportunity for banks to retain their existing, technology-savvy customer base by offering value-added, innovative services and to attract new customers from corresponding sections of the society. The customer survey provides evidence that such sections in the meanwhile include the affluent and financially relevant groups of the society in Germany. The time seems to be ripe to convert this non-negligible customer interest into business-driving customer demand. A proactive attitude on the part of the banks seems to be therefore recommendable.Many banks in Germany have come to regard Mobile Banking as a necessary tool for thwarting negative differentiation vis-à-vis rivals and to foster/retain an innovative image. This self-reinforcing dynamism is expected to gain currency in near-future so that Mobile Banking services could soon advance to a standard product - on the lines of Online Banking - offered by more or less each and every bank.
