Networking with the startup ecosystem

The degree programme places great value on intensive networking with the Styrian, national and international startup ecosystem. This allows students to expand their personal network and make useful contacts.

In the first semester, students get to know the main stakeholders of the Styrian startup ecosystem, such as the Science Park, the Styrian Business Promotion Agency (SFG), Gründungsgarage, Ideentriebwerk and the startup service of the Styrian Chamber of Commerce. An excursion to Vienna in the second semester creates links with the Austrian startup network; in particular, students come into contact with the Female Founders Accelerator Programme, the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) and other relevant institutions.

In the third semester, students go on an excursion abroad to the startup hotspots in Europe, such as Berlin and Lisbon, in order to benefit from the dynamics of this scene and to draw inspiration.
