Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
The origin of talentify is more than 10 years back in a project (Junior Company) we startet in high-school. At the university we startet a bottom-up students' magazine with print and online editions. After graduation I gained a lot of experience and knowledge in online marketing, community building, social media strategies and was leading a software development company before founding our social business. This gives me a lot of insights and a great professional network to rely on.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
We are working together with a great team of external and pro bono supporters. Like graphic designers, software developers and a marketing agency. Furthermore, we invited an advisory board consisting of a BCG consultant, a school principal, a teacher, financial and PR experts. They help us to develop our strategy, give networking opportunities and guide us with their experience. Beside that we also gained support and formed partnerships with big corporations like SAP, Microsoft and a local bank (Bawag P.S.K.) as well as the economic chamber of Austria and several representations of industrial leaders, unions and other NGOs or social businesses like Teach for Austria.
