Save the Date: TechCrunch Vienna and much more, 6 October

It’s been a long time since TechCrunch made its last official event in a german speaking country. Almost exactly two years after TechCrunch Munich and our TCEU Editor Mike Butcher developing a crush on Berlin, we are bringing TechCrunch to Vienna. The event will take place in one of the most prestigious and old-fashioned industrial houses, embedded in an entire week of startups, investors and tech-lovers from all walks – The Startup Week 2011

TechCrunch Europe will be hosting the event at the “Haus der Industriellenvereinigung” on October 6, 2011. The entire event will be Europe’s first startup festival that spans over an entire week from October 3-7, 2011, organized by a young organization called STARTEurope, aiming to connect europe’s startup scene, with a focus on german speaking countries and eastern europe.

Grab your ticket for the event here and access all events aside from TechCrunch Vienna as well. Early bird tickets are on sale now. For details on organisation, sponsorship, etc you can contact me (Lukas Zinnagl) on lukas.zinnagl [@] (do not contact Mike, he gets enough email).
