sektor5 as a physical space closed its doors November 2017. sektor5 | 5starts will continue its investment management and support of selected start-ups and portfolio companies, virtually (for updates: medium.com/@sektor5). It was a good 7 years.
sektor5 was elected Best Co-working Space for the third year in a row in 2017 by the Central European Startup Awards. Its accelerator 5starts was named Best Incubator / Accelerator Program 2016 and 5starts' Managing Director Floor Drees was honored with the award Most Influential Woman by SAP.
“Through sektor5 we found our team and we were able to finalize our product faster than we had hoped, which we’re very thankful for.”
Bernd Gruber (indoo.rs Co-founder)
“When we started at sektor5 it was just us and our idea. At the time we moved our company to Berlin we had a product, a team, a network and a strategy. sektor5 played a vital role in that development.”
Arnim Wahls (firstbird Founder / CEO)
“We launched our product at sektor5. We’ve recruited our first 5 team members from the sektor5 network as well as our first big clients.”
Lukas Kinigadner (anyline Founder / CEO)
“sektor5 is the heart of the Austrian startup scene. It’s the best place to start your tech company, get feedback and learn from all the nice and smart people there. Although I’m currently living in the US, I’m always super excited to grab a coffee at ‘S5′ whenever I’m in town.”
Moritz Plassnig (Codeship Co-founder / CEO)
“sektor5 is the startup hub of Vienna. When you set out to change the world to the better you need all the unfair advantages and support you can possibly get. sektor5 is not only a physical location. It is a reality distortion field. I don’t know where we would be today without sektor5.”
Thomas Schranz (Blossom Co-founder / CEO)
