The energy didn’t stop there, there were still stops in Linz and Innsbruck! During the community networking event in Linz, our team met members from Factory 300, a coworking space and startup ecosystem in Linz, and also spoke to students excited to apply for future ATA exchanges. Alexis even accidentally joined a hackathon dance party hosted by Pioneer Festival! The Roadshow cruised to Innsbruck, for an informative roundtable discussion about the impact of GDPR on startups and entrepreneurs. We ended on a high note with breathtaking views on a hike to the top of Nordkette Mountain with ATA alumni.

Getting to connect with so many different Austrian entrepreneurs during the Roadshow reaffirmed the importance of having an international mindset. Understanding different cultures and the commonalities across borders encourages us to think and act in ways that are globally beneficial. Being a global entrepreneur doesn’t have to mean solving problems on a global scale — it’s about having the adaptability and passion to create a better world, one community at a time. All in all, the first Austria to Austin Roadshow was a huge success, and we look forward to building many more bridges from 3DS to the world!
