The Austrian Bay Area community is always busy! Join us for Open Austria’s signature events:

Digital Imperative

Digitalization has become imperative for companies and individuals around the globe. In Open Austria's Digital Imperative Open Salon series, we will explore how Austria is handling this transition. During each episode, we will talk to top political representatives, entrepreneurs, think tanks, legacy companies, and creative minds from both Austria and Silicon Valley. Digital Imperative is part of the Austrian Foreign Ministry's ReFocus campaign and is carried out in partnership with Salesforce.


Open Salon

In efforts to continue connecting with our community, we have launched our Open Salon series, a conversational compass for explorers and pioneers (which is how we like to characterize our community). This new format has been and will continue to be an opportunity for you to engage, exchange, contribute, and learn from others. We invite entrepreneurs, scientists, researchers, and creative minds from SF to Vienna to come together and speak on a variety of topics, such as artificial intelligence, entrepreneurship, cybersecurity, Silicon Valley’s future, and more!



Every summer, we partner with a tech company in Silicon Valley to bring together our community, showcase our successful entrepreneurs and celebrate our distinguished innovators, network, mingle, and have a magical time in the South Bay. 

Every winter, we host a holiday networking event to wrap up the year and mingle with our colleagues and friends from the tech world and beyond. This fun and festive evening is geared toward meeting friends new and old and includes a special showcase of new technologies and companies!

Here is a look at our 2017 holiday networking event

In 2020, we began adapting these signature community gatherings to an online format, and we look forward to hosting them in person again when it is safe!
