– get further information and ask your questions
– mingle with future TUW colleagues
Due to COVID-19 the info event will be taken place online in order to ensure that everyone stays safe and healthy.
The only requirement is to be enrolled at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien).
Just register via Eventbrite with your TU Wien email address!
Don’t forget to press attend to get reminded and mark your calendars! This event is free!
Get support for your project from a community of innovators and entrepreneurs of TU and WU. Present either your start-up or your first idea in a relaxed setting and without pressure. At JointForces you have the opportunity to attract the attention of interested co-founders, employees and mentors. The feedback from the community can provide the decisive impulse for the next step.
3 START-UPS – Already founded start-ups, which have provided their proof-of-concept, are pitching and looking for employees, valuable contacts or investors.
3 PROJECTS – Without guidelines or specifications, future founders are presenting their project ideas to get some feedback and perhaps even get to know future co-founders.
3 SHOUT-OUTS – Everyone has the chance to make a brief request, an event announcement or whatever. No feedback, no questions – who wants to know more, has to ask for details during the networking afterwards.

Start-up founded and looking for motivated employees, interested mentors or the first investment? JointForces offers you the stage. Pitch the vision of your start-up and add new drive to your team.
You have an idea, but your friends are not a big help because no one has any idea of founding a company? Then muster all your courage and walk up on our stage. Present your idea at JointForces and get support and feedback.
You want to kick-start your project soon, but would like to get some more feedback? For your planned start-up foundation, you are still looking for a motivated co-founder? Then a pitch at JointForces is the right thing to do!
You are a start-up enthusiast and want to learn about new ideas? You know why most start-ups fail and what could be improved? You are looking for an evening event that has not existed yet? Then come to JointForces and support young start-ups and project ideas. Without registration, without costs, but with drinks and pizza!
JointForces is a monthly event hosted by the Innovation Incubation Center (i²c) TU Wien and the WU Gründungszentrum.
Please note: During today’s event photos and/or videos will be taken which may be published in various media for reports on the event or general PR.
Achieving success in the MedTech world has been said to depend on the four factors of Unmet Need, Intellectual Property, People and Money. There are various schools of thought on which of these should come first. Stanford’s Biodesign program teaches the needs-led approach based on early stakeholder engagement. The age-old “Technology Push” approach starts with IP, and often has to search for or establish an unmet need. Starting with people or money is less common. A deeper dive into case studies of successful MedTech societal impact teaches us that we should consider all of these factors as substitutable. You are almost certainly familiar with examples of pivoting a technology to another unmet need, but how do you build a stronger business case by swapping Intellectual Property, People and Money?
About the lecturer:
Professor James E. Moore Jr., Ph.D.
The Bagrit Chair in Medical Device Design
Department of Bioengineering
Imperial College London
Prof. Moore received his PhD in 1991 from the Georgia Institute of Technology, followed by postdoctoral training at the Swiss Institute of Technology at Lausanne, where he also helped set up a new biomedical engineering lab. In January 2013, he joined Imperial College as the Bagrit Chair in Medical Device Design, and started a new masters program in medical device entrepreneurship. To date, eight spinouts have resulted from this program that have attracted more than £4 million in grant and professional investor funding. Prof. Moore is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, and the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering.
Prof. Moore’s research interests include Cardiovascular Biomechanics, Stents, Implantable Devices, Atherosclerosis, and the Lymphatic System. His research focuses on the role of biomechanics in the formation and treatment of diseases such as atherosclerosis and cancer. His cardiovascular biomechanics research includes the first studies of the effects of stents on both blood flow patterns and artery wall stress. This work resulted in the development of two novel stent designs aimed at optimizing post-implant biomechanics for the prevention of restenosis. He is currently developing two technologies for preventing and resolving secondary lymphedema, which forms subsequent to cancer surgery. Along with his funding from government, charity, and industry sources, Prof. Moore has received multiple patents for medical devices and testing equipment. Prof. Moore has also co-founded two startup companies, with another two about to emerge.
