What is START:IP?
START:IP was initiated by INiTS, Austria´s most successful business incubator, and is an international marketplace for cutting-edge technologies from academic or industrial R&D.
So, if you are an entrepreneur, an innovation manager, or an investor, this is your chance to learn first-hand about these technologies and eventually turn them into profitable products or services.
The START:IP Matching Day
Exclusive access to cutting-edge technologies and early-stage investment opportunities
On 30 January 2020, the Matching Day will take place at the Vienna University of Technology.
At this all-day event you will first see presentations from technologies from 5 different CEE countries. Afterwards the scientists are awaiting you to discuss technological details and potential applications at their booths. In addition to an interesting supporting programme, there will be plenty of time for networking with entrepreneurs, company representatives, investors, scientists, and funding institutions.
How it works
With the registration you will not only receive 1 ticket for the Matching Day, but also immediate and full insight into all technology offers (product descriptions, patent specifications, videos, scientific publications) before the Matching Day.
That means that you also have the opportunity to contact the scientists before the Matching Day and thus gain a head start. On top of this you also will get a 50% discount on the claiming fee, which includes the right of first refusal for one technology.
