MU Startup Day 2018 a success!
April 24, 2018
The official kick-off of the MU Startup Hub and very first Startup Day was a complete success! Curator of the MU Startup Hub and organiser of the Startup Day, Nik Munaretto recaps the first major on-campus event between MU Vienna and the Startup community.
"We managed to bring 11 startups from Austria, Germany and Croatia together with 10 corporate partners – all major player in their respective fields. The whole day served as a basis for future partnerships and collaborations in regards to the roll out of our incubator program as well as the hub and all its facilities in general. The evening networking session was a great opportunity for current students to build contacts after class with some of the most innovative new companies around.
Managing Director of MODUL University Vienna, Christian Hoffmann and I were pleasantly surprised by the active participation of our corporate partners. It wasn’t just a one way-street in respect to participation, but all stakeholders brought a variety of innovative ideas and helped to shape the whole structure of the hub.
Feedback was really good, especially on the mix of industry related startups and big corporates was perceived as extremely valuable by the partners.
Philippe Thiltges, Managing Director of WhatAVenture, hosted an interactive workshop with a focus on innovation within an organization and outlined possible future engagements with the MU Startup Hub."
