After successfully organizing 5 Startup Lives in Vienna, the organization committee went out to change the way how Startup Lives operate. They added a whole day to the already working foundation of the 3-day event concept. Already one week before the actual event took place the pitchers gathered at sektor5 to compete against each other for the spots for the main event at the so-called Pre-Pitch Day. Additionally they received individual feedback on their pitching technique and got a first glimpse at lean methods.

In order not to be taken as a Fools’ Day announcement, we had to wait until April 2nd to announce our second entrepreneurial event, aka Startup Live Athens #2, five months after our first one.

Already in summer 2011, the kick-off meeting between STARTeurope and StuCon concerning the Startup Live Krems #1 took place. The huge difficulty of finding a suitable location kept the Startup Live Krems crew busy until the mid of October, but then it was finally clear: the Startup Live Krems #1 will take place in the BORG Krems, from the 16th until the 18th of March 2012.
