Pioneers Festival 2012
A project by STARTeurope

With an outstanding team of 37 people and a framework of five different specialized partners we realized the complete dramaturgical conception and production of the Pioneers Festival 2012 ( ). It took place at Vienna’s imperial palace on two consecutive days. More than 60 international speakers including Siri founder Adam Cheyer, Dave McClure, Esther Dyson and Matt Mullenweg made the event to a high class start-up congress.

Trial Bike and Fashion Show at noon, a spectacular Pioneers Challenge Award Ceremony, startups from all continents and more than 50 countries, massive media coverage and around 2700 visitors were rocking Vienna’s imperial palace.

Based on a Television-Corporate Design-styled concept, each program item had a special bumper with sound and a programmed light show. Special were the formats „Clash of the Founders“and the „Pioneers Challenge“, with a complete dramaturgical course.

Media Coverage
TechCrunch, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Wired, The Next Web, The Kernel spoke in the highest terms of the festival.
