As we go into our 7th batch of Empower Austria, I thought I would commemorate it by taking you through the essence and motive of our project. Empower Austria was born in September 2016. It was designed to meet the short time skill requirement needs of Austrian Start-ups and to bring in young internationals and their perspectives into the local Start-up scene. By the end of the Summer, we would have brought 150 interns to over 100 Start-ups. In three years, we have had the opportunity to partner up with multiple excelerators, start-up platforms and even create our own entrepreneurship kit in collaboration with the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation.

Empower Austria is our project based on AIESEC’s product shaped for the entrepreneurial scene, Global Entrepreneur. Global Entrepreneur was created in 2015 to cater to Start-ups and young aspiring entrepreneurs all over the world. We aim to cater to Start-ups by bringing aspiring international entrepreneurs to your venture whilst we offer these young individuals the opportunity to internationally develop themselves and their career.
Our global value proposition for businesses is to ultimately to bridge the gap between an expensive and globalised company. We aim to solve this gap by helping you acquire bright minds from all over the world with our processes it would be as easy if not easier than hiring locally and all of this at an affordable price tailored for the Start-up scene. These passionate interns are carefully handpicked to not only contribute, but also learn from your venture. With Global Entrepreneur, we seek to help globalise your Start-up and customer bases grow to exceed borders and languages.
As for the interns themselves, we promote this opportunity to be able to dip their toes into their aspiring career and for them to understand the behind the scenes of a fully functioning Start-up. In all our products, AIESEC for youth focus on leadership development and creating opportunities for young people to step out of their comfort zone. These interns actively apply for these projects as an opportunity to extend their horizon culturally, personally and professionally.
On this note, we invite you to be part of inspiring and being inspired by the entrepreneurs tomorrow. We invite you to be part of a movement that is beyond borders and to boost your venture at the same time. Our project is tailored for a Start-ups just like yours. What are you waiting for?
