SXSW: Inspiration and know-how transfer at one of the leading digital events.
At the South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) the who-is-who of innovators from the digital industry meets every year. This year, e&Co. together with the Austrian Chamber of Commerce organized a one-hour program on the subject of "Digital Drive" in the "German House". CEO Engelbert Wimmer kicked off the event with an inspirational keynote followed by a panel discussion. Three start-ups were involved: our Venture Butleroy (digital assistant with artificial intelligence), Humanising Autonomy (innovative HMI interface between people and autonomous cars) and sezame (inventor of secure access to online services without passwords). "All in all, the festival was very inspiring and marked by the open atmosphere of intensive exchange typical of the Americans. I am pleased that we were part of one of the big fixtures in the calendars of the digital guild with our event. Together with the start-ups, we were able to provide interesting impulses for improving cooperation between the small speedboats and the large tankers". (Dr. Engelbert Wimmer, CEO e&Co. AG)
