The third Startup Live Vienna!
The event started with a bomb – 27 pitches! The STARTeurope team was amazed at the quality of the pitches, ideas and people – you guys blew our minds.
It IS hard to describe yourself, the problem you address, your solution and all in 90 secs, but these guys were good. More than half the pitches led to teams forming and then people got to work.
The result: 16 pitches were delivered on sunday evening! WOW! Usually some give up, but these guys and gals had that amazing “feature” called persistency.
Some developed prototypes, others rethought their concepts, several used the business model canvas seminar which STARTeurope gave to get to know their strengths, business and potential pitfalls.
During the weekend, mentors and experts came by and supported the teams – founders, investors, consultants, designers, techies, biz people, incubators…
- Mirko Ilic – star designer (NY Times, LA Times, Playboy)
- Rolf Mistelbacher – Marketing Manager at Microsoft Austria
- Mark Tuttle – serial entrepreneur
- Isabella Frey – from ZIT
- Peter Tschuchnik – from inits
- Selma Prodanovic – incrediblEurope, CEO Brainswork Group
- Eric Pöttschacher – CEO, founder of shapeshifters
- Martin Herdina – CEO of fatfoogoo
- Jakob Sommerhuber - founder of platogo
- and many many more…

Echo is an online service where you can monitor response-, up- and downtime of your website(s). If either responsetime is too long or your website is down you instantly get notified via Text and/or Email. The performance of your website(s) is very important, as it affects the Google Pagerank since April 2010. Furthermore late downtime recognition could end up in high unnecessary financial loss. To prevent such discomfort a service like echo is a must to every webhost who is running one website and even more essential if running multiple websites.

Analogy Problem Solving
- Tagline: A new concept of problem solving
If we know the natural, unchangeable rules that govern one domain, for instance music, we can use them in another one where apparently no rules govern, for instance economics, in order to optimize the latter. I have made that statement being sure (from own observations in research) that things happen and evolve following the same patterns… Even if the shape (domain) is different, the essence (rule, development) remains the same.
Everything is connected to everything, therefore problems that occur in a domain that is not very well known, can be solved using data from another field where things can be clearly proved.
In order to confirm this theory I have been talking to lots of specialists from my country (engineers, artists, mathematicians….) but I do not want it to remain a bare theory, being more interested in a practical use.
- Tagline: Travel to learn
Connecting young people in Europe and India over culture, travel, learning and substantial issues
Whenever we travel the most significant things are people we meet & experiences we share, these are the memories that stay forever. Our organization KnowledgeYatra creates these experiences by taking you on a Journey that make you travel, learn, interact and get a peek into the cultures of the destinations you go to. As our name already suggests (Yatra is the hindi word for Journey) we provide knowledge & learning based travel experiences.
With a focus on India as destination we want to develop cultural and developmental understanding, by organizing 2-4 week Intercultural & Developmental Study tours. These study tours have a shared focus on getting to know the country and its culture through many interactions with locals and topics of social development. We would like to provide the participants a chance to explore the deep and vibrant cultures of India and Europe, offering more than just superficial tourist programs.
MORE TO COME
