Pioneers Festival brings tech innovations to the Imperial Palace in Vienna


SPONSORED POST We live in a world of smartphones and tablets, of 3D printing, artificial intelligence and unlimited opportunities. The question is: How will new technologies affect human beings as a society and what will that mean for new opportunities and challenges?


From 30-31 October, the Pioneers Festival will bring together well-known national and international entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, tech enthusiasts, media representatives, and pioneers in a variety of fields to celebrate a new age of pioneering in Austria’s capital city.

This is all about real pioneers from software to hardware – makers, developers, hackers, explorers, innovators, creators, business heroes and great achievers.

Confirmed guests include Phil Libin (CEO Evernote), Pete Worden (Director Ames Research Center, NASA), Adam Cheyer (Co-Founder Siri), Charles Adler (Co-Founder Kickstarter) and many more.
