Silicon Castles is once again on the hunt for European Diamonds, and the 2022 edition of the Startup Executive Academy is soon closing for applications! The Austrian Tech Company Builder and Strategic Business Accelerator is dedicated to supporting gifted entrepreneurs with unique and innovative ideas.

The annual Startup Executive Academy (SEA) is an international go-to-market programme for executives and founders of early-stage tech startups. The programme aims 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. It’s been polishing up European Diamonds in the making since 2017 and the 2022 edition is getting underway with calls for applications still open. European Diamonds are those startups that have great potential to unlock – boasting unique ideas with the potential to scale. 

Act Fast! There are only two slots remaining!

The academy is led by Prof. Baba Shiv from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, accompanied by a great selection of top executives and experts and former executives from world-leading companies such as Intel, Edelman, SONY, Dolby, Electronic Arts, Spencer Stuart, PWC, PlayStation, McKinsey, LG and Deutsche Telekom.

The SEA22 will be run in a hybrid model in two stages: The first stage will be an intensive 4-day face-to-face program in Salzburg, and the second one will be a 5-unit online program.

This year’s faculty, including Pascal Levensohn and Andreas Spechtler, features an amazing lineup of leading industry experts – sure to help elevate your startup to the next level.
