Last Friday, ORF 1 hosted Austria Can, a live broadcast which highlighted innovative projects in Austria that work to address the urgent challenges of our society. Ten entrepreneurs participated in the event, six of which were Impact Hub Vienna members or program alumni (listed below). Each project was reviewed by a board of experts which included Former Federal President Heinz Fischer, Alpine skier and entrepreneur Rainer Schönfelder, and Katharina Klausberger, co-founder of the flea market app Shpock. The winner of the evening, WADI, was chosen by popular vote by viewers. A big congrats to WADI and all the Impact Hub Vienna members and alumni who participated in the broadcast! If you’d like to watch the recap, you can view it online here.
