THE EVENT SERIES FOR ENTREPRENEURS
Register for the
LAB Series 2021!
We accepted the challenge of the pandemic regulations and took the Entrepreneurship Avenue to the next level! This year the Avenue will be held in a hybrid format. The fully online Kick-Off session, the LABs, and the hybrid Pitch Day enable participation from all around the world. While some participants can attend the final Pitch Day physically in Vienna, others will have the opportunity to join online. In case the restrictions won’t allow a hybrid event we will inform all participants ahead and switch to a fully online event. This is how we challenge. innovate. create.
