WHAT WE DO Austrian Edupreneurs is the platform for the Austrian EdTech community and stands for more dialogue, cooperation and partnership between the education, training and media sector. It is an independent and non-profit platform of, by, and for the EdTech community, to strengthen the EdTech ecosystem in Austria and increase its visibility. Austrian Edupreneurs is all about forming an Austrian EdTech network, and creating connections of individuals, organizations and companies within the EdTech ecosystem. It is an open place for all people, who are encouraged to use technology in educational settings.
CONNECTWe connect companies – especially EdTech startups – with people from universities, schools, research and educational institutions as well as people from civil society to foster the use of technology in learning, development and training. This will be done through an ecosystem overview and a listening of all stakeholders shared through our website as well as in physical and virtual/online events we will be organizing.
INFORMWe offer an in-depth overview and very useful information about the EdTech landscape and industry in Austria and internationally. This will be done through information shared through our website, but also in various communications with all participants of our community (newsletter) as well as via our social media channels. (coming soon)
SUPPORTWe assist Austrian EdTech startups to become better at communicating with potential customers and get in contact with institutions as well as in improving their “go-to-market strategies” that take account of competitive market dynamics. (coming soon)
WHY WE DO IT We believe that nobody should try to push the use of technology in education on their own. It’s much less effective and much less fun. That’s why we’re building a network of edupreneurs, whether individuals or organizations, so that we can reach together even more and have a greater impact.
