Abstract

La bonanza tabacalera que tuvo Colombia a partir de la década de 1850 impulsó la llegada de casas comerciales y agencias de navegación alemanas a Barranquilla. Además, para la misma época se presentó un abaratamiento de los fletes marítimos de algunas compañías europeas, lo que significó un impulso al comercio y a la migración desde Alemania. En las últimas décadas del siglo pasado, las firmas alemanas de mayor actividad económica en Barranquilla fueron, entre otras, las de J. Helm, O.Berne, Hoenisberg & Wessels, Müller & Siefken, Hollman & Merkel, Aepli & Eberbach y Gieseken & Held. En este trabajo estudiaremos en detalle la experiencia empresarial de Adolfo Held en Colombia y en especial en la Costa Caribe. En la medida que Held fue uno de los comerciantes alemanes más activos de los que se radicaron en Barranquilla en las últimas décadas del siglo XIX, su caso ilustra muchas facetas de la actividad empresarial de los alemanes en la historia económica de esta región del país.
