“No matter what, stick to your idea”, was one crucial tip for founders from Hans-Dieter Toth, CEO of Eurotours International. Last Friday he was one of the speakers sharing his entrepreneurial experience at the Business Angel Summit in Kitzbühel.
The summit offered selected startups the opportunity to pitch their business to Investors. Hotel Kitzhof, the event location, was filled with great ideas. For example Rainer Philippeit develops Software and Hardware for palm vein recognition, making the identification of a person faster, easier and more secure. The Mikme Microphone app records wireless studio-quality audio with a single push of a button. The startup Freeze produces a unique heart catheder helping patients with atrial fibrillation. Anyline is an App which identifies text, codes or numbers taken with your smartphone, Coolcare is a device to cool down body parts and thus reducing swellings and Mattro built a cool new electric-powered vehicle.
It is great to see that the Austrian startup ecosystem is on the political agenda. In his keynote, State Secretary Harald Mahrer stressed out how important innovation is for Austria, especially as our prosperity relies on innovative and high quality products.
The Summit was organized by Business Angel Jürgen Popp, Standortagentur Tirol and the Austrian development and financing bank AWS (Austria Wirtschaftsservice). Venionaire happily hosted the Reception Evening on Thursday with Champagne sponsored by Stift Klosterneuburg and Winery Neumann.
