Startups and young founders have become the most important source of innovation and digitalization in the modern age. Unfortunately, Austria, due to a multitude of different circumstances, lags behind in terms of start-up incorporations, chances of survival, financing and consequently innovation.
Our goal is to reduce at least one of these obstacles: information. After more than seven years of joint experience in startups, whether as a founder or taking part in high growth ventures, we aim to inform students of the seventh and eighth grades (juniors and seniors of high school) through short, individually targeted presentations and workshops.Learn More
To educate high school juniors and seniors about entrepreneurship as a viable career choice with a particular emphasis on an unbiased representation, underlining the skills and profiles necessary for success without glamorizing or underselling the realities of entrepreneurship.
The workshops are free of charge, last for one hour and take place in the classroom of the participating school. The workshops are held by one of our handpicked entrepreneurs with experience in founding startups. Download our School Infosheet for more information on our workshops.Download School Infosheet (DE)
