E.I.N.S. on the Radio: Supporting Start-Ups in Austria and Beyond

Malgorzata Goraczek and Ulrike Wieländer of E.I.N.S. joined radio host Anna Michalski in the studio of Campus & City Radio 94.4 and discussed what it takes for an idea to become a successful start-up. The episode recorded in December 2022 is full of valuable insights and tips for anyone interested in entrepreneurship. "Great things are being created here," says Ulrike Wieländer, who has been involved in supporting start-ups at St. Pölten UAS for some years now. Some of the most successful projects she remembers for example are a company that created sustainable clothing that adapts to size. Another young team worked on data protection for smart devices, and yet another created a shop specialized in sustainable toys for social pedagogy and psychotherapy.
