Last Friday, the Ambassador was in Styria’s capital, promoting entrepreneurship.
He attended an Entrepreneurship Breakfast, to which our co-host Austrian Economic Chambers had invited in Graz this time, and took the opportunity to meet with some of the participants of our Austria to Austin startup exchange program with 3 Day Startup.
In a subsequent panel discussion, ‘Go West – Expansion of Austrian Startups in the US’ at the Fifteen Seconds Festival, the Ambassador spoke about his experiences as a “serial entrepreneur.”
In his opinion, what does it take to be successful as a startup in the U.S.?
In a nutshell: “Networking and persistence.”
