Save the dates: i²c Founder & Investor Talk Series 2017


The TU Wien Innovation Incubation Center (i²c) gladly announces the upcoming start of the 6th season of the i²c Founder & Investor Talks Series. Over the past 5 years, the number of participants was growing constantly – filling rooms with 200 seats in average – thus, we are looking forward to another season of inspiring talks with great networking opportunities this summer semester.

The i²c Founder & Investor Talks enable the diverse audience to learn first-hand from experienced founders and investors. They share lessons learned, dos and don’ts during their talks and answer the participants’ questions in interactive Q&A-sessions. The audience benefits from given tips and hints and gets valuable insights into the founder’s as well as the investor’s perspective. The talk series offers the possibility to network with like-minded people in relaxed atmosphere accompanied by some drinks. Videos from last year’s talks are available on our Youtube-channel.

In 2017, we once again invited well-known successful (serial) founders and investors who will share their international experience. Find below an overview of whom to expect this summer semester.
