European Startup Festival: 50 Startups reaching for the top


Besides the fact that our TEDxVienna Event will launch pretty soon, there is additional  excitement going on this month: Startup Week. Right now it’s all about a five-day conference with focus on Startups from Central and Eastern Europe that takes place in Vienna. Topics besides others: Design, Digital Media, Gaming, Health 2.0, Movie,…

Mindblowing business ideas, inspiriational talks and shared experiences of top international speakers are awaited by the audience to be on their menu. And they won’t be disappointed by the end of this week.

Already 50 selected startups from all over Europe presented their innovative ideas on Monday and Tuesday. Out of these, 10 will get the chance to pitch in front of a top class investor panel and might get featured by TechCrunch. A great chance to give their business momentum.

The next days, until Friday, will bring up the chance to meet the internet- and mobile-stars. 70 international top-class speakers (Esther Dyson, Morten Lund, Reshma Sohoni,…) will hold panel discussions and talk about their experience as a startup. Not enough: During the whole week 12 focus events will take place around Vienna.

Sounds exciting to you and taking part in the conference would be a great deal? No problem, all talks will be broadcasted live.

To give you a little sense on what kind of business ideas participated on the challenge, we proudly present five startups right here on our Blog:
