I’m blogging from STARTup live, a three-day weekend workshop for entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs-to-be in Vienna. Taking place at Microsoft’s spacious headquarters, 100 participants work in 27 teams developing business models, prototypes and design for web and mobile ideas.
Friday’s kick-off speech was given by serial entrepreneurs Markus Wagner and Oliver Holle who are about to launch Austria’s new Angel fund ’InitialFactor Speed Invest’ this Monday.
Disclosure: As a member of STARTeurope, I’m one of the co-organizors of STARTup live.
That said, I want to state that this has really been among the two best startup workshop I’ve seen in CEE region (the other one was IPO48 in Prague). We sold out all tickets.
In hosting startup events, I believe it pays off to concentrate on one sector – in this case web and mobile ideas – because that brings together the smartest brains interested in one area, setting free enormous creativity.
