The 2nd Austrian Innovation Day - Silicon Valley!!!!!!
On Wednesday, September 4th, 2013 I had an wonderful day of Austrian Innovation, thanks to the Austrian Innovation Center-Silicon Valley and Mario Herger.
10:00am at TechShop in San Francisco we had a tour of TechShop looking at the inner workings of the place. There was TV Crew from Austria for Servus TV joining us in the fun and making a report for their TV station. Our group worked together to build a fantastic Chain Reaction Machine (also known as a "Rube Goldberg Machine").
Later in the day we went to the 2nd Austrian Innovation Day in Palo Alto, which gave Austrian start-ups, companies, and academics an opportunity to learn about the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit Silicon Valley. Speakers from start-ups, venture capitalists, analysts, academia, law offices etc. will highlight the culture and spirit of the valley through looking at diversity, innovation, creativity, risk, and other values that make the Silicon Valley to the most innovative location on the planet.
