Startups with a focus on Healthtech wanted!
The twelfth GO AUSTRIA round by the Global Incubator Network Austria (GIN) offers a 2-week incubation program with its main focus on health-related startups, from October 11th – 22nd, 2021. It will give participants the opportunity to explore the Austrian and European markets, as well as to find new collaboration partners and/or investors. One major asset of the program is the personal startup mentor who will be matched to each startup, supporting it to validate their business model, network with investors and relevant stakeholders, as well as design an internationalization plan.
GO AUSTRIA Fall 2021 is an exclusive, intensive 2-week program in Austria for 10 startups who are already in the later stage phase and are thinking about expanding to the European markets. The program features exclusive workshops, individual mentors, selected events with networking opportunities and special partnerships with selected Austrian corporates. This is a perfect chance for startups to expose their ideas to a specialized audience, to meet interesting potential partners and to forge meaningful connections during the program.
Our Corporate Partner Concept
Since 2016, the most successful GO AUSTRIA participants have built long-lasting relationships with Austrian corporates. To kickstart even more high-quality corporate-startup collaboration, the GO AUSTRIA Fall 2021 batch, in addition to the classical mentoring concept, features “corporate partnerships” as a pilot. Selected well-known Austrian enterprises have agreed to support a startup of the GO AUSTRIA batch if it matches their challenges and there is potential for co-operation. These corporate partners will be involved in the startup selection process. At least five out of the ten selected GO AUSTRIA startups will be assigned a corporate partner, based on the corporates’ needs and the startups’ offers.
If it’s possible to travel we would like to welcome you in Vienna to participate in the workshops and meet the corporate partners. If not, no worries, you will be able to participate digitally and come to Vienna at a later time.
