The Startup Executive Academy (SEA) is an international Go-to-Market programme for founders and executives of early-stage technology startups that has been taking place annually since 2017 in the Castle of Urstein – Salzburg, Austria.
The aim of the academy is to enable startups to accelerate their business by providing highly relevant and practical input that is delivered by a world-class faculty from academia and business. The SEA is organized by Silicon Castles, an Austria-based strategic business accelerator, and led by Prof. Baba Shiv from the Stanford Graduate School of Business together with Andreas Spechtler, founder and CEO of Silicon Castles.
