The Entrepreneurship Avenue is Europe's largest start-up event series with a focus on students and the goal of inspiring young people for the startup scene. The Avenue brings together students, founders, investors and mentors, thus creating the basis for putting business ideas into practice. The aim of the labs is to network and motivate students from different disciplines to find ideas or co-founders. At the same time the participants receive valuable coaching sessions by experienced founders and mentors. The highlight of Entrepreneurship Avenue is the Conference. Panel discussions, interactive workshops, breakout sessions, a pitch competition, the first start-up job fair in Austria with the possibility to participate in job chats and much more await the participants. The Labs kickoff will take place on 30th March at the WU, followed by three other lab events at other universities in Vienna. The conference will take place on May 8th at the WU. The event is organized by the Entrepreneurship Center Network (ECN) and SIMConnect.
