StartUs Connect 5.0: Vienna Edition

Published on:

StartUs Connect, our 5th event in Vienna, took place on August, 13th. In case you couldn’t make it: Check out what you missed on this amazing evening.

On August the 13th our 5th networking event in Vienna took place: StartUs Connect 5.0. It has already become a tradition to gather startup enthusiasts, founders and mentors from Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava in the amazing Stockwerk Coworking. Once again we had the chance to get to know each other, to exchange ideas and to network.

David R. Prasser, the founder of StartUs, welcomed the guests and after giving some latest updates about our recent developments at StartUs he introduced the three speakers of the evening to the crowd:

  • Péter Kovács, CEO of IseeQ, former talent scouter at Prezi, CEO of Central European Startup Awards, was revealing his secrets on how to attract talents to work at your startup – especially when you have not much more than a winning idea and a motivation to realize it.
  • Sasan Hashemi of Venionaire Capital introduced us to the financial aspects of startup life and what are the tricks and tips of applying for Venture Capital funding.
  • Anna Iarotska (COO) and Rustem Akishbekov (CEO) of Robo – the winner of this years’ Vienna Startup Award and several other awards – shared with us their story on how to build a successful hardware startup.

After each presentation we had some Q&A’s to learn some deeper knowledge about the topics. Despite the enormous heat inside and outside of the building many startup enthusiasts found their way to Stockwerk. Lively discussions took place and new connections were made: We are sure the newest startup ideas were born exactly at StartUs connect. Congratulations also to Verena for winning the networking challenge: For being the most active networker she was awarded with some Red Bulls.

We from StartUs would like to thank all the supporters, sponsors, visitors and ambitious startup enthusiasts who made this event again a very special one. Don’t miss the next StartUs Connect event: Bratislava 2.0 with CESA. Many more to follow!
