☀️☀️☀️ Ready for an epic summer in Vienna?! ☀️☀️☀️

Awesome, we are too!

For all those hardworking startup people without time for a proper vacation we decided to organize a LIT (finally a good reason to use that word) Pool Party – the hottest (or coolest?) get-together of the Austrian startup scene! Coworking during the day – Party in the evening – topped up with some pitching (of course, in the end it’s a startup pool party, right?!)

Aaaaand did we mention there is a pool to cool down, coconuts, amazing drinks & some fun pool action? 😎
