This summer marked the third iteration of the Embassy-funded “Austria to Austin” entrepreneurship exchange program. This year’s group was bigger than ever with a total of 34 participants in two groups. They traveled to Austin to train with 3DayStartup, network with the Austin community, and receive mentorship from top entrepreneurs in the Austin ecosystem.
However, the A2A experience does not stop once the students leave Austin. This reception gave the participants a chance to strengthen their sense of community and to help each other in their entrepreneurial endeavors. Ambassador Traina welcomed the alumni at the Amerika Haus and and told them about his own experiences as an entrepreneur. Later on he chatted with them about their time in Austin and their projects.
