We’re excited to announce that Dropbox has dropped anchor in Hamburg. This culturally and economically vibrant city is home to our newest office, and a natural next step for us in Europe.
We love helping people around the world work better together, and users in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) love working with Dropbox. One in three internet users in DACH are now on Dropbox, and they’ve created over 163 million connections to date by sharing documents and folders. This makes Dropbox users in DACH our most collaborative in the world per capita—even more so than the US.
From co-working spaces to corporations, people bring Dropbox to work, and adoption in Germany has been phenomenal. The top three cities in terms of Dropbox signups are also the largest: Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich. But Karlsruhe and Dresden are the real hotspots when measuring users per capita.
Dropbox Business has also seen tremendous growth in Germany, with customers tripling over the past two years. Leading European brands such as Bauer Media, Expedia, Mathys & Scheitlin AG, Audibene, TUI Group, and the German Development Institute are among the 8,000 teams in Germany using Dropbox Business to collaborate and stay productive.
From manufacturing to professional services to healthcare, industries in Europe and around the world are discovering the benefits of increased collaboration on Dropbox. And the opening of our Hamburg office is just a part of our European commitment. We launched our Amsterdam office in February, and our offices in London and Paris just celebrated their one-year anniversaries. We’re learning from our customers every day by being where they are. So moin moin, Hamburg!
