Business Lunch with the Vienna Business Agency and Insights into University-Based Incubation Centers

The first module in the New Year started very eventful for the students of the Professional MBA Entrepreneurship & Innovation. The Continuing Education Center of TU Wien and the WU Executive Academy invited a number of interesting guest speakers not only for the evening but also for lunch. It was a pleasure to welcome representatives of the Vienna Business Agency as well as the university incubators INiTS, I2C and WU Gründungszentrum.

Business Lunch with the Vienna Business Agency

The Vienna Business Agency is the first point of contact for national and international companies. With their slogan "Vienna: City of Start-Ups", the representatives, Matthias Heilbrunner of the Department Funding and Michael Schwantzer of Technology Services introduced the funding opportunities of the Vienna Business Agency. In a cozy atmosphere during the lunch break, the MBA students learned about the funding landscape and the wide range of consulting services for start-ups. To satisfy not only thirst for knowledge but also hunger, pizzas were provided for lunch.

Insights into University-Based Incubation Centers

University-based incubation centers are important contact points for scientists, students and alumni in order to support innovative ideas and start-ups. With INiTS, i²c and WU Gründungszentrum, TU Wien and WU Wien cooperate with three highly successful incubation centers which offer various services, large experience and wide-ranging networks. In the evening representatives of all three institutions shared insights with us and answered burning questions about acceleration programs, funding, investor relations, booming industries and markets, pitching, and much more. Following the talks and Q&A session, a buffet offered a nice setting to get in touch.
