Hi, I’m Florian Kandler. I’m a three-time founder from Vienna, who’s companies have raised over €3 million of funding. You might know me as the official Pitch Coach of “2 Minuten 2 Millionen”, the host of the Gründer&Zünder Podcast, the author of the “Business Angels Devils” book, or from teaching about pitching and fundraising at Accelerators. 

I know how tough it is to raise capital. And how great it feels, when you close a round of funding and take your startup to the next level of growth.

Startup Report is one of my passion projects since 2015, and is part of my various initiatives that aim to help founders build fundable businesses.

I want to inspire founders in Austria. Show them that “it can be done here” (= the funding list in the report)! Show local role models (= the founders in the report). And, very importantly, invite the successful founders to share their fundraising tips and insights with the community (the Q&A in the report).

I hope you will enjoy reading Startup Report, get inspired, and learn from the successful founders.

Sincerely yours,

Florian Kandler
– Keep up that startup spirit!
