“STARTeurope is an organization, which was founded in Vienna by a circle of entrepreneurial thinking people with tech and business backgrounds in 2009. Driven by the same ideas – being the need for change in existing mind sets – the group of young people started challenging traditional perspectives. The vision was to activate and foster entrepreneurial thinking and to bridge the gap between different disciplines.
With the premise of “innovation through collaboration” STARTeurope tries to make a difference using a three step approach. First, the organization leads a movement by establishing a community of diverse people sharing the same values such as curiosity for the new as well as a hands-on-approach towards work. Second, through its events STARTeurope wants to sensitize people to entrepreneurship and to alternative career paths, which counter conventional business wisdom. And third, the members of this initiative make change happen not only by shifting thinking
but also by boosting local economies helping local entrepreneurs to start up their own business.”
