Something has been brewing in the Pioneers kitchen for the last few weeks and now the secret has finally been revealed: The creators of Pioneers Festival have launched Pioneers.io, a platform for entrepreneurship and cutting edge technologies, with which they are taking their mission to inspire, educate and connect pioneers all over the world to the next level. World‐class innovators, like Siri Founder Adam Cheyer and Walter DeBrouwer from Scanadu, are also on board – they will join the festival in October.
We live in a world of smartphones and tablets, in a world of 3‐D‐Printing and unlimited opportunities. The question is: Where are all these innovations heading and how are we going to ensure that technological breakthroughs reach as many people as possible? Pioneers, a team situated in Vienna, is dedicated to spreading the Pioneers Movement across the globe and thereby boosting a worldwide technological and entrepreneurial movement.
Jürgen Furian, Co‐founder and Pioneers Architect said on the importance of being at the intersection of entrepreneurship and future technologies:
We are convinced that the ideas and projects individuals and teams are working on in combination with technology and entrepreneurship are going to significantly revolutionize people’s lives. Combined, these two fields have the potential to push innovation to the extent of our imagination and beyond, and that’s something we have to foster. We inspire, educate and connect individuals and projects with the ultimate goal of solving the greatest of challenges. We are about to enter a new age of pioneering.
To bring the pioneering spirit to people across the globe, Pioneers writes about exciting projects and startups; they portray inspiring pioneers and showcase future technologies ‐ from software to hardware, from aerospace and artificial intelligence to web/mobile, robotics and health. With their Pioneers Unplugged events, they bring together local communities for an evening full of tech talks and networking with regional pioneers and other movers-‐and-‐shakers. The highlight: Once a year they all come together at Pioneers Festival – startups, founders, hackers, bloggers, VCs and innovators – to inspire and be inspired. Pioneers Festival gathers the tech scene to educate, entertain and inspire a new generation of pioneers in one of the most impressive locations imaginable for a tech event: the prestigious Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna. Numerous speakers will join the festival. Pioneers is convinced that nowadays individuals and small teams have the power to have a significant technological and entrepreneurial impact on our world. Andreas Tschas, co‐founder and CEO of Pioneers says:
This is why we establish a worldwide community of pioneers – people that support each other, work together and breathe the pioneering spirit says. It’s people with intense passion who are the game changers, and we are their platform for acquiring the necessary know-‐how, inspiration and valuable contacts to succeed.
