START Vaduz: Pitching in the Four-Country Corner

The Road to START Summit 2022, which recently took place in Vaduz, was a complete success. With countless participants and seven early-stage startups that presented themselves, START Vaduz enabled an excellent hybrid pitching contest after the great Corona time.

Sodex, an automation company from neighboring Austria, won the contest and earned a ticket to Europe's leading student-run conference for entrepreneurship and technology, with a chance to win CHF 10,000. 

Liechtenstein’s largest student-run entrepreneurship initiative!

START Vaduz as part of START Global, the largest entrepreneuship network in Europe, has been striving since 2004 to communicate and promote entrepreneurial thinking and action in Liechtenstein. This motivation is not only being fueled by various events such as pitching contests, founder talks, or company visits but also events, specifically aimed at students from surrounding universities and technical institutes. Goal is to bring together people from a wide range of disciplines, resulting in new ideas, a broader network and finally startups. 

With the great opportunity to meet new people, even from different faculties of the university, I have come to know and love the network that has been created. With cool team and networking events, you get to meet a lot of new people really quickly. 

I can only recommend you to join the student association START Vaduz at our small university in Liechtenstein. We always find room for your creativity and enthusiasm.  I am looking forward to meeting you at the events or even welcoming you as part of START Vaduz in the summer. Here you can become part of out Team.

Three tips for those interested in the Bachelor of Business Administration:
