The event has ended.


The Startup Live Fem Edition – Why we do it!

Together with Female Founders, a non-profit organization to connect female entrepreneurs in Austria, we want to support female founders aiming to start or accelerate their business, meet investors and relevant media representatives and connect with likeminded people.

How to attend?

Apply online, either for our workshop during the day or the Pitching Competition in the evening. We will select a shortlist of applicants who then will be able to attend.

Pitchers will be able to pitch at the TechDay of the Business Riot Festival in front of an audience of 800 attendees, a selected jury of investors and important stakeholders.

Who can attend?

Startups and project ideas, where the majority of the founders are women or over 50% of the startup are owned by women. Furthermore your business idea / startup should be addressing a relevant market need, should be scalable and tech-oriented.

What to expect?

We are starting the day with (optional) Workshops, depending on your current project status. Topics covered will be Customer Exploration, Market Testing, Business Modeling & Pitch Training. More information will be announced soon.

6 selected projects will be able to pitch in front of our panel of judges. Winners will be chosen based on their pitches and the potential success of each project.

Please note: For attending the workshop please make sure to buy a Business Riot Festival Ticket here. Attending the Pitching Part is free of charge.
