Some surprisingly ingenious Austrian startups are on route to London. But will their high-tech innovations be enough to convince UK investors to part with their cash?

This November sees the return of our Pitching Days event, at which a carefully chosen selection of Austria’s leading tech entrepreneurs go head to head to win the backing of an audience of UK business angels and investors (if you are an investor, register here now ).

With its pro-start-up culture and events like the Pioneers Festival, Austria is emerging as one of Europe’s key tech hotspots, and there is no shortage of new companies looking to follow in the footsteps of last year’s Pitching Days winners.

The Austrian Federal Economic Chamber's Startups go global  and  partners Junge Wirtschaft and AWS have worked hard to select the very best start-ups to compete at the London event, for which we have also joined forces with our promotion partners the UK Business Angels Association .

The competing start-ups cover a wide range of sectors, from medtech and life sciences to sensor technology, biometrics, energy technology, fintech, B2B software and applications for the internet of things.

Amongst the impressive candidates are:

  • An infection-busting biotechnology
  • A pain-relieving portable device
  • Video glasses that help to distract anxious patients
  • The safest and most efficient authentication solution currently available on the market
  • The first small scale application that enables the collection of solar energy in the form of steam
  • A sophisticated piece of financial analytics software
  • A new way to collaborate with commercial partners
  • Some great news for sports fans unable to get to their favourite team's fixtures in person
  • An online community that promises to save musicians a lot of time
  • And a tool set make today’s factories ready for a smarter tomorrow

What they all have in common is a place at the cutting edge of new technology and a burning ambition to take their ideas to the next, international level.

The Austrian pitching day happens in our London office on 26 November.
