I.E.C.T. – Challenge 2017

The final of the I.E.C.T. Challenge on 13th of October 2017 took place under the framework of the Investors Academy at Werkstätte Wattens. Six start-ups had the chance to present themselves in front of more than 30 business angels, among others Hermann Hauser and the I.E.C.T. Capital Partners.

The finalists were selected from over 60 projects with the support of the Crowdinvesting platform CONDA. The six finalists pitched against each. The winner at the end was LCT, short for Light & Concrete Technology, a Styrian based start-up with Managing Director Alexander Haider and Dieter Christandl. They are specialised in light-weight panels with integrated LED lights.

The winner of the I.E.C.T. – Challenge has won a teambuilding event, and a private coaching session with Hermann Hauser. This year, there was a special prize awarded to the start-up Handcheque: they received a three month voucher in the Co-Working space and FabLab of Werkstätte Wattens. There are no losers – the business angels showed interest in all finalists of the Challenge.
