Austria’s Pioneers Conference: The Hub For Global Early-Stage Startups, Investors

This year, the Pioneers organizers added a one-day Govtech event, a day ahead of the main event, where politicians, public sector CIOs (San Francisco, Palo Alto…), startups, corporations, and investors will discuss the latest trends in Citizen Collaboration, Blockchain, and Security.

“Pioneers has an explicit and thorough focus on core smart city solutions, more (in substance) than the other conferences,” said Mark DeSantis, the CEO of Pittsburg-based RoadBotics who was selected to pitch at the event. “Also, they’re making a great tool to connect participants with decision makers. For example, I’m meeting with officials from the City of Vienna to pitch our solution.”
