Vienna #9


The event has ended.


Share your idea, build your team and get to work: life is short, so why wasting time? Give all you’ve got and create a new business from scratch in a weekend. In a unique atmosphere, people from various backgrounds come together and develop early business concepts.

Mentors with proven experience in start-ups will guide you with first-hand tips on how to make a successful business. By Sunday, you’ll have the foundations for a functional start-up: the projects developed during the weekend will be evaluated by a panel of judges.

You can either pitch your own business idea or help a presenter develop their idea. From business guy to programmer to designer – everyone is welcome!
