Another amazing year has passed and we’re back in time to kickstart a great 2016 together!
We’d like to dedicate our 30th Stammtisch to a topic which currently made headlines in Austria: startup accelerators and incubators.
With the help from aws JumpStart, incubators are finally sprouting all over Austria and are poised to become an integral part of the startup ecosystem. For some, especially first-time founders, it is sort of becoming a checkbox item: go through an accelerator/incubator. Serial entrepreneurs, as a rule, would say they don't need to, because they already know what to do. We wanted to use this momentum to find out more about the potential benefits and downsides of joining such an organisation from startups who experienced it first-hand.
For this we gathered a great panel:
- Christian Kletzl (Smarthires)
- Anna Iarotska (Robo Wunderkind)
- Bernhard Hauser (orat.io)
- Hanno Lippitsch (Eversport)
Following the Q&A session at the end of our panel, we invite all of you to stay for further networking in the startup-friendly atmosphere of Sektor5 and also participate in our “Startup Speed Dating”, where you have the chance to directly engage with panel speakers, founders and members of the AustrianStartups community.
