GUH - Networking Trip to Cambridge

GUH, winner of the I.E.C.T. Challenge 2016, was on a Networking Trip to Cambridge.

The Vienna based start-up is developing an open source OS for the internet of things. With this great product, they won the I.E.C.T. Challenge last year and received a networking trip to Cambridge. During their visit they explored the thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem of Cambridge, expanded their network and had the opportunity of a private session with Hermann Hauser. They also spent one week in IdeaSpace at the University of Cambridge, a co-working space that is supporting the development of high impact new ventures.


Recent activities of the Hermann Hauser Investment GmbH

Hermann Hauser started his investment activities in Austria 2 years ago. After the first I.E.C.T. Summer School on Entrepreneurship in 2015, it became clear to him, that there is great potential in the Austrian start-up scene.

“The ideas we see here are as good as those in Cambridge and Silicon Valley” he once said and so it is hardly surprising that he has started to invest in Austrian start-ups. Until now, the Hermann Hauser Investment GmbH has funded 16 companies mainly from Austria and Hauser became Austrian Business Angel of the Year 2016 as well. Hermann Hauser and the I.E.C.T. offer entrepreneurs an integrated infrastructure and support in cooperation with a regionally, nationally and internationally linked network of partners, especially at Cambridge University and the Hauser Forum, by establishing partnerships and formats like the I.E.C.T. Summer School and I.E.C.T. Challenge.

An important part of the I.E.C.T. organisation are the I.E.C.T. Capital Partners, led as a club referring to the model of the Cambridge Business Angels. It is crucial for start-up-ventures, to attain money fast and uncomplicated. The I.E.C.T. Capital Partners, headed by the Hermann Hauser Investment GmbH, make this available.
