TU Wien is the source of Deep Tech innovation in Austria. With the annual i²c Networking Friday – a conference dedicated to entrepreneurship as the third mission of a university – TU Wien not only showcases TU Wien innovations and spin-outs but also brings together scientists, representatives from industry and politics, public and private investors, entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial interested.

 

What has been an on-site event for 6 years is now transferred to an online event in 2021 considering all rules and regulations that come along with COVID in our daily life.

This year’s panel discussion will focus on “Spin-outs as the 3rd mission of Universities: Motivation, Obstacles, and Perspectives”. The panel will be in German language. Together with our two moderators, Dr. Birgit Hofreiter and Mag. Daniel Cronin, we are looking forward to an interesting and controversial discussion with:

 

  • DI Michael Altrichter, Startup-Beauftragter des Bundesministeriums für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort,
  • Mag. Marlis Baurecht – Entrepreneurship/Schutzrechte/Seedförderungen, aws
  • Prof. Dr. Ulrich Frank – Lehrstuhlinhaber Wirtschaftsinformatik und Unternehmensmodellierung, Universität Duisburg-Essen
  • DI Herbert Gartner – CEO eQventure
  • Doz. Dr. Sara Matt – Leitung Transferstelle Wissenschaft-Wirtschaft-Gesellschaft, Universität Innsbruck

#E4s – What to consider when splitting the founding equity @ Online Event
Mar 16 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
#E4s - What to consider when splitting the founding equity @ Online Event

Description of the workshop

The most successful ventures are founded by entrepreneurial teams rather than individual entrepreneurs, but a large founder team can be problematic as well. In the special case of establishing a university spin-out, the number of founders is likely to be higher, the team members fulfill various roles and have a different level of commitment to the day-to-day running of the company. As a provider of resources and permissions, you can expect the university to become a significant shareholder as well. Splitting the equity equally among university and/or founder researchers might be detrimental to the spin-out in the long-run. So how to make sure everyone gets his / her fair share of equity?

This workshop covers important topics like the size of the shareholding, how to split founder equity dos and don’ts and possible consequences, how to tackle founders who don’t commit 100% or want to continue their academic path as well as provide you with some tools to ease the process of splitting the founder’s pie.

At the end of the workshop you will:

  • know what to consider when splitting the founder’s pie
  • have a good overview on what obstacles to avoid when founding a university spin-out
  • know what to expect when negotiating with your university
  • have gained some insights on how to structure your next steps

Being productive is more than just learning how to “squeeze the lemon”. It’s about learning how to implement simple structures and habits that make your complicated life at least a little bit easier. Let’s jointly discover some of the most powerful productivity hacks that high performers across all industries keep as their “little unknown secrets”. Learn what they are doing to have more things fit into their 24hours of the day and what it is that you can do to stay ahead of the game on the truly important things in your life, the stuff that really matters… and not the little things that creep in! Beware: this workshop is interactive, practicable and not about theory but application!

#EoI – My Northstar @ Online Event
Apr 28 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
#EoI - My Northstar @ Online Event

Description of the workshop

Do you have your personal Northstar? That bright, shiny thing in the middle of the night’s darkness that gives directions, that allows you to decide what gets a “YES” and what gets a “NO” in your life?

If you don’t have your Northstar you shouldn’t be too surprised if you wake up one day, wondering why you are where you are. You are interested to get back into the driver seat of your life? You’d like to have (finally) more clarity for what you’d like to see happening? You are wondering how to put all that on your personal vision board? These are the things we are going to touch on in this workshop – but only join if you are ready to get some work done, answer some questions for yourself and if you are ready to differentiate yourself from average-performers.
