What others say
Empowering minds since 2014
Long story short

Curious minds: To us, they are people who continuously and passionately engage with new technologies, practices, and approaches. They never stop learning and tirelessly face the future head-on. In 2014, we created Fifteen Seconds as a global platform at the intersection of business, innovation, and creativity that has since brought together more than 30,000 thinkers and makers from these areas in Graz. Together, they’ve shared ideas, pushed each other forward, and helped shape the future. We’d love for you to be one of them.
