In 2019, Fifteen Seconds Festival gets even bigger, as we introduce three new areas: science, mobility, and technology. At the same time, we strengthen our offers for ambitious founders with a scalable business model. In our new startup land, the driving forces of the Austrian ecosystem meet with leaders from the international startup scene. Sounds like the place to be for you? Give yourself a boost and use our leverage.
