Picture of Markus Raunig"We are happy to have Austrian Standards among our co-operation partners. We consider standards to be an important factor that provides orientation to start-ups at the outset and makes their achievements visible internationally. As a platform of the Austrian start-up community we want to make the topic of 'standards' accessible to more start-ups and point out all the opportunities."

"One of our main tasks at Startup Live is the transfer of know-how related to the establishment of start-ups. Many new entrepreneurs are not aware of how standards can facilitate their work at many levels. Our partnership with Austrian Standards ensures that this knowledge is passed on to aspiring start-ups early enough."

Thereby, we enable our start-ups to take account of these standards or even actively shape them in order to design their products or interfaces so that they are compatible."
