Office Hours


About Office Hours / What are the AustrianStartups Office Hours?

Our Office Hours are an initiative for startups across Austria who are looking for help with respect to certain topics. You can meet (or video phone) with experts and benefit from top notch advice in areas like growth strategies, financial modelling, industry best practices and more. Hence, startups can progress faster and bring their business to the next level.

On top of pro bono special advice from one of our partners we also offer AustrianStartups ecosystem consulting that helps with connecting you with the right players in the ecosystem and includes giving feedback for your pitch or similar.

Office Hours are 100% free.


Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 10am to 12pm (with some exceptions).
20 minutes slots per startup


At Impact Hub (or via Skype)
Lindengasse 56, Vienna, 1070 Austria

Who are the experts?

The consulting experts are our long-term partners with expertise in numerous areas. Legal, taxes, protecting your brand, business modelling, finance and more. In a 1-on-1 conversation, our partners answer questions startups have with respect to the partner’s field of expertise and help resolve open questions about for example the product, business model, organizational setup etc. This could range from value proposition, marketing to potential funding strategies.

How does it work?

We invite an expert from our network of partners to each Office Hours event. Startups can easily reserve a 20 minutes slot with the expert and meet them at the booked time. If a startup is located in another state of Austria, we’ll call them via Skype. During their time slot the partner answers the most pressing startup questions to resolve specific business problems.
