The warm summer months encourage us to get outside, enjoy the long summer nights and on occasion take a vacation.
Although we have been enjoying our summer here at Impact Hub Vienna, we have not been slacking off too much. And our hard work paid off because in this latest installment from the Success Board, we have some pretty rockin’ successes to celebrate.
At the last Wine Down held at the Badeschiff, Community Catalyst Dushan announced the most recent successes at the Hub. To cheers and applause we celebrated four categories of success here at the Hub.
Under the category “Next Step” Success we celebrated Organisation Dock12, who just launched Kontexten.org. Günter Strobl and Dock12 are helping businesses better understand the complex context within which they exist, thereby helping them generating a holistic business model. To give you a little context, here is their new website: http://www.kontexten.org/.
We also celebrated cooking initiative “Koch Doch” which has officially become an association! They will continue to offer delicious, nutritious home cooked meals for the Impact Hub Vienna community. In case you haven’t checked it out before, be sure to swing by and check in with Barbara Schöllenberger on Thursday’s upstairs where she prepares vegan meals every week.
We also celebrated BLITAB, this years Social Impact Award winner. They recently launched the beta version of their tablet for blind and visually impaired people. BLITAB Technology, developed the first-ever tactile tablet, which uses a new liquid-based technology to create a tactile tablet experience similar to Braille. The tablet can also produce tactile graphics and maps for the blind and vision impaired.
Under the “Getting Acknowledged” category, we celebrated Shades Tour, which made the “Top 40 Things to Do in Austria This Summer” list. Their tours were mentioned among the first five activities. In case you didn’t know they are now offering tours in English, so be sure to check it out.
Under the “Founding Something Great” category we celebrated Weitsicht, who recently opened the Sustainable Management Centre in Vienna. They are providing assistance to small and medium sized companies that want to create businesses in a sustainable and socially responsible way.
Finally for the “Personal Victory” category we celebrated Annemarie Harant, co-founder of Erdbeerwoche as she was invited to be a speaker for Start-Up Retreat Portugal. Start-Up Retreat is a special project for open-minded entrepreneurs to get together in inspiring places to brainstorm and network. We also celebrated author Maja Monrue on the publication of her first book called “A Book For Men” and on her recent engagement!
